Description: Students in this course examine the artistic, architectural, and archaeological monuments of ancient Italy and its expansive Roman Empire from c. 900 BCE to 400 CE. This span of time traces the rise of Roman art and architecture from its early beginnings under Etruscan influence through the era of the Roman Republic, when Italy was unified under Roman rule and the armies of Rome began their conquests of the Mediterranean. Students follow the development of Roman art, architecture, and archaeological monuments under the Imperial system, focusing on the monuments from the reigns of famous Roman emperors such as Augustus, Trajan, Hadrian, Marcus Aurelius, and Constantine. Finally, the rise of Christianity is examined through its artistic and archaeological remains.
