Venice and the Mediterranean: Crete

2018-06-18T21:36:08+05:00

This project developed out of ART330/HLS331: Venice and the Mediterranean in the Spring of 2007. The course explored the artistic and cultural geography of Venice’s Mediterranean empire, known as the stato da mar, from its beginnings in 1204 to the loss of Crete in 1669. During a 9-day trip to Crete, sponsored by the Program in Hellenic Studies, students discovered a unique cultural palimpsest, with layers of physical remains from the Minoan, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian, and Ottoman periods still visible in the cities and the countryside. The class then collaborated on the construction of the website, using photographs made on the trip and providing commentaries for a defined group of monuments.
