DEPARTMENT OF BYZANTINE ART

The Department of Byzantine Art curriculum delves into the material remnants spanning the Late Antique and Byzantine eras.

This period encompasses the time from the 4th century AD to the fall of Constantinople in 1453 AD, including all territories and provinces under the Late Antique Roman Empire's jurisdiction. During the Byzantine Middle Ages, the focal point shifted towards the Eastern Mediterranean area, particularly centered around Constantinople as the capital.

The coursework covers various subjects such as religious, military, and civil architecture, urban planning and topography, visual arts including sculpture, painting, and mosaic work, handicrafts, everyday artifacts, inscriptions, manuscripts, and coins.

Moreover, aside from Archaeology and Assyrianism, the curriculum facilitates the creation of interdisciplinary connections with European Art History, Church History, Medieval History, and Anatolian Principalities. This integration fosters a comprehensive understanding of Byzantine Art within broader historical and cultural contexts.
