2107 - Reading Cathedrals of Britain: Their Design, Architecture, and Imagery
Cathedrals, a favorite destination for adventurers and photographers, have wonderful stories to tell. But to understand their stories you have to speak their language. This five-week class explores the reasons behind the construction, design and imagery employed in cathedrals. We will examine some of the most loved cathedrals of Britain to learn the basics of Romanesque and Gothic sacred architecture. Weeks 1-4 will meet at Piedmont Hall at Carolina Arbors. Week 5 will be a field trip to either the new cathedral in Raleigh or Duke Chapel. Details for the field trip have not been yet finalized. Students will be responsible for their own transportation and we will try to schedule the field trip as close as possible to our established class day/time. Lecture (plus Questions); Field Trip(s)
