Burgundy: Architectural Treasures

Saturday, February 23, 2019 - 08:00 to Sunday, February 24, 2019 - 21:00

AH2012 Medieval Art & Architecture
CM2004B Comparative Historical Communication

Known primarily for its fine wines, the Burgundy region is also the home of some of the greatest masterpieces of Romanesque architecture and sculpture. Explore the impressive churches of Vézelay and Autun, which still preserve much of their 12th century sculptural decoration of tympana and historiated capitals. Study the mysterious and beautiful lintel of Eve from Autun, by one of the few known Romanesque sculptors, Gislebertus, now exhibited at the nearby Rollins Museum. At the Abbey of Fontenay, discover
the stark contrast of the austerity of Cistercian architecture and observe the region’s characteristic and magnificent multi-colored roofs.

Led by Professors Anna Russakoff and Justin McGuinness
