ARTH 301-301
The Icon as Art and for Worship
Instructor: Professor Meister
R 1:30-4:30

Course Description

This workshop will allow students to explore issues surrounding the use of art within ritual and as a tool rather than museum artifact. India's religious art will act as a focus -- deity images, temples, paintings, and ritual implements -- but the function of art itself will in large part be our subject. Students in the seminar will review recent scholarship and also be able to use the collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
