More than just a piece of religious architecture, the Roman basilica has a life of its own that revolves around a rich tradition, history and practice of pilgrimage. This lecture series investigates the different classes of basilica and their architectural and ecclesiastical contexts, including the privileges attached to their status, and related theology. You will discover how Constantine’s imperial piety and patronage of Christianity became memorialised in the construction of buildings constantly embellished throughout the ages, giving physical testimony to the power and faith of the Christo–Roman heritage.

Target audience:
This course is for those interested in religion and the history of Rome: its churches, art, architecture and papacy or hagiography. It will also appeal anyone who wants to know and feel more than the ordinary visitor to the Eternal City of Rome.
