CH 138: Of God and Things: Materiality and Christian Practice in the Middle Ages
What can objects - treasure, relics, books and beads - teach us about Christian devotion and theology? How can material objects serve as sources of Christian history? How does contemporary scholarship on material objects relate to medieval Christian discourse and practices involving material objects? This course – during which we shall make use of the outstanding resources of New York's museums to examine together particular objects - will provide an introduction to the study of material cultures in the study of medieval church history.
