Rom (IT)

Summer School: Cultures of Science and Art in Rome

As city of the pope, Rome has been an important religious and artistic center since the Middle Ages. It is less well known that Rome has also been a center of scientific research and the visualization thereof. This fact has been undervalued because of the traditional, but by now outdated, opposition between religion and science. Religion and science were by no means mutually exclusive, as the scientific activities of the Jesuits show. Therefore, this course will introduce Rome as a city of knowledge in its European and global contexts from 1400 until 1900.

The course is open to 8 RMA and PhD students who are a member of a Dutch National Research School (members of the Huizinga Institute have first access) and 8 international RMA and PhD students. The study load is the equivalent of 5 ECTS (140 hours). Tuition and lodging at the KNIR for selected participants is covered by the Huizinga Instituut (for students from Dutch universities) and by the Bibliotheca Hertziana (for international students).
