Course Description

This course will cover the history of the transformation of Trinity College into Duke University, with the participation of the Duke family, and the buildings that make up the West Campus. The focus will be on the 14th-century Gothic-style Duke Chapel, the most dominant of these buildings. The stories of the designers, stonemasons, and wood, iron, and stained glass artisans who worked on the chapel and of the unusual and elegant touches they produced will all be presented. A guest lecturer, John Santoianni, curator of organs and clavichords in the Duke Department of Music, will give an in-depth tour of the four chapel organs and their complex inner workings. • Lecture + Q&A.
