This course will focus on how the Ottonians manipulated the visual arts to communicate and consolidate their power. They commissioned a spectacular array of illuminated manuscripts, goldsmiths’ work, enamels, cast bronzes and ivory carvings as well as grand churches presaging the emergence of the mid-eleventh century Romanesque architectural style.
