RELIGIOUS ART AND DESIGN; EMPHASIS ON ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS
we will journey to Paris and tour the Louvre. Then it will be off to London where we will spend a week in the city studying the history of European art and design with a focus on the illuminated manuscripts and the book arts. Finally, we will venture to Scotland. Based from Edinburgh we will visit Lindisfarne and Iona. These are the sights where the most celebrated works of the book arts were created; the Lindisfarne Gospels and the Book of Kells. The journey will also include sites from contemporary pop culture such as Harry Potter. You will collect digital photographs along the way and the experience will culminate in the creation of your own art objects. Your personal program journal will become a work of art and keepsake of your journey.
This program tours urban and rural areas of the UK and France stopping at the primary centers of Art and Design to explore the sites and museums. Students will see how religion shaped western culture in ways that are still relevant in their everyday lives.
You will earn Junior Cornerstone Credit in Religion and Art & Design History credits as you create your own masterpieces of the visual and written word in the same environment that the magical Book of Kells was created!
All courses will satisfy either Belmont requirements in the Gen Ed core or the specified major. You must participate in at least one course offered in France and the UK. You should consult individual program faculty to see how online options can fit into your study abroad program.
