BBST 755 - Early Christianity Travel Seminar

3 credits
In this seminar for doctoral students, we will study the material culture and history of Greek, Roman, and Byzantine antiquity, culminating in a 15-day trip to Greece and Turkey. We will visit archaeological sites, museums, and churches and discuss the physical spaces, visual representations, and everyday materiality of the ancient Mediterranean. Course topics include: the built and visual culture of empire, imperial and local religion, the construction of sacred space, religious pilgrimage, asceticism, martyr cults, healing shrines, domestic life, and the theory and politics of archaeology.
