SummaryUnder the collective title Church and Courts (1300-1700), the lectures in Semester 2 address developments in art in Europe from the later Middle Ages to the end of the 17th century. Students may be more familiar with the material in the second semester but we will place it in a context that may seem unexpected. We look at the work of artists of this period such as Jan van Eyck, Durer, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Rembrandt within its social milieu. We consider art and sexuality, patronage, power relationships, religious crisis, the role of women and many other major social issues.

Learning Outcomes
History of Art 1 consists of two semester units but each semester unit is also designed so that it can be taken as an independent course by visiting students who are in Edinburgh for only one semester. Students who take this course come with very different levels of knowledge of art history. Our intention is that by the end all will have acquired an understanding of the important issues raised by the subject and of the methods used to deal with them; they will also have a command of the basic concepts and vocabulary of the discipline. In the lecture units and seminar courses students will learn the methods of art history through the study of the work of selected artists, types of objects, and periods of art. Emphasis will be placed on the critical analysis and interpretation of visual and historical materials, both in the lectures and in seminars. Seminars will make use of material in museums and galleries in Edinburgh.
