In some senses, the Middle Ages never ceased. Cathedrals continued to be used, manuscripts preserved and treasured, liturgies celebrated. In another sense, the term itself suggests something in the past, and after the Renaissance and especially the Enlightenment, the medieval period again gained favor. This course looks at the creation and collecting of medieval art from the eighteenth into the twentieth century for its contributions to the art and architecture of those years and the impact upon scholarship of medieval art.
