Oxford University Summer School for Adults: Medieval Architectural Style: Dating and Understanding Old Churches
This course will take students through the history of English medieval architecture, enabling them to discern the various architectural styles seen across the country, in great cathedrals and humble parish churches alike. With this knowledge students will be able to date parts of these buildings, as well as deepen their understanding of the changing times in which they were built. The course will include a field trip to a series of fascinating and beautiful buildings emblematic of each style.
This course aims to enable students to identify the main periods of medieval architectural style, especially in old churches.
This course will enable students to:
deepen their understanding and appreciation of the buildings around them;
recognise the key identifying features of medieval architectural style;
improve their analysis of buildings of all types and periods, especially with respect to the identification of stylistic change;
deepen their understanding of the concept of style, especially as it relates to architecture;
achieve an overall sense of the significance of other techniques for analysing buildings, especially those dependent on archaeological and historical evidence;
generally enrich their visual skills;
improve and broaden their understanding of the medieval world and medieval religious culture.
