The Medieval City and the Pilgrimage City: Gondar and Lalibela

Jan 5, 2015

By Brooks Travelling Fellow Amber N. Wiley

Library of Yohannes I in the foreground, Chancellery of Yohannes I in the background. Fasil Ghebbi complex.

I looked at the date on Fasilides Castle—1667—and thought to myself “Wow, this is incredible! If only I had known… I would have taught my history class in a completely different way.” The date was important for two versions of a class I taught. The first version was entitled “History of Architecture: Renaissance and Baroque.” The second version was ambiguously titled “History and Theory of Architecture and Urbanism II.” In both versions of the course the historical trajectory had found its way to England via Inigo Jones and Christopher Wren by 1666.
