Learning outcomes

The course aims to educate the knowledge and understanding of the history of Christian churches and corresponding ecclesiological structures as indispensable elements for the analysis of modern and contemporary society, especially in relation to its artistic heritage. Through the thematic paths and the analysis of concrete examples, at the end of the course, the student has the tools to critically analyze the influence of Christianity in religious, political and, above all, artistic-cultural context.

Course contents

The course, after some general and methodological lessons designed to provide indispensable institutional tools and knowledge, provides the analysis of the central knots of religious and churches history in the 16th and 21st centuries, paying particular attention to the perception, production, use and protection of the Cultural, Monumental and Artistic Heritage that the different ecclesial realities testify both in Europe and in the lands under the missionary action. Among the themes in depth: 1) Value and use of images between the Council of Trent (1545-1563) and Vatican II (1962-65). 2) The material and spiritual conquest of the New World. 3) The events that involved the Society of Jesus in the eighteenth century - the expulsion and suppression of the Order- and the consequent impact of the presence of Jesuits expelled in the Pontifical State. 4) History of Women and Churches.

The themes developed in class will be deepened by guided tours and participation in seminars and multidisciplinary meetings. There will be also planned visits to monumental complexes which will be announced during the development of the lessons.
