The chosen examples will therefore be considered not only from the perspective of style, but also from the point of view of their meaning and function within the prevailing political, religious, and socio-economic context. 

 

The aim is to have students develop an understanding of art and architecture as products not only of individual artists, but also of the larger cultural and historical influences of their age.
