Winter semester

 

Subject: Rοman Architecture in Greece.

 

Summary: This course examines the monumental architecture of the roman period in the Greek mainland. Τhe seminar will investigate both sites and monuments in which the former is essentially in line with the local Hellenistic tradition and cases which reflect roman metropolitan tastes. Among the topics examined are the technological advances which allow the emergence of new schemes in cities of the roman period (e.g. vaults, mortars, castelladivisoria, buttresses) as well as the introduction of new structures (funerary monuments, fora, kaisersale, odeia, nymphaea, basilicas and aqueducts).

ST. KATAKIS

Winter semester

 

Subject: Publication of Roman Sarcophagi in the National Archaeological Museum.

 

Summary: Aim of the seminar is the research of the methodology and the successive steps for the publication of an ancient sculpture, particularly when it is fragmentary preserved. Startpoint will be the study of the marble and the way of working of the ancient sculptor (marble recognition and identification of the remaining traces of the tools used); we will then proceed to the observation and detailed description of the fragment, the identification of the depicted subject and its typological and stylistically study, to document finally its chronology. For the practical application of the above, each student will prepare the final study of an unpublished sarcophagus fragment kept in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

Spring semester

 

Subject: Many are the Forms of Divine Things”: The Myths of Metamorphosis in Archaic and Classical Iconography.

 

Summary:  Greek mythology includes a number of episodes that describe gods, heros or humans who have been transformed into animals, plants or objects. A large amount of scholarship has been devoted to the discussion of the origins and the interpretations of these myths, which appear already since the time of Homer and Hesiod. In this seminar we will focus on the rather complex way of depicting the metamorphosis myths (visual narration), mainly through vase painting of the 6th, 5th and 4th c. BC. We will examine the basic metamorphosis myths in iconography, comment on the sources of inspiration and the choices of their makers, discuss the visual codes that they used and, finally, compare the literary and pictorial narration of the myths.
