In this course, we will learn to read the evidence of the past through the experience of the present. Our focus will be upon the microcosm—the individual and unique neighborhoods of Paris, Rome, and Brussels, the palace of the Sun King in Versailles, the Papal enclaves of Avignon and the Vatican, and the Franciscan monastery of Nice. We will learn to read those environments for evidence of the many diverse communities that have existed through the ages and continue to exert their influence today. We want to pay attention to human activity as well as artifacts and environments that allow us to appreciate the rich layering of cultural history that has formed these places.
