INDS 215 Medieval Architecture in Northern Europe: Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands

This course entails on-site study of medieval architecture in Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands. The architecture is considered as an expression of northern medieval European society and technology. The technical accomplishments of medieval builders are emphasized; Roman architecture, based on large-scale use of masonry arches and vaults, is studied as medieval architecture's foundation. Study of history from the Roman through the medieval period enables students to place the architecture in a societal context.
