As a fifteen year old homeschooler with a considerable interest in art and architecture, I can safely say this was an excellent class. Guided by Mr. Campbell’s fun and intuitive lectures, I acquired a deeper understanding of how sacred architecture developed over the ages, as well as a knowledge of how symbolism reflects church teaching. Along the way, we were introduced to some examples of the styles that we were studying, a vast collection of churches, paintings and baptisteries, as well as some secular buildings to compare and contrast. This class is great for anyone seeking knowledge on christian architecture. I certainly recommend it or any of Mr. Campbell’s classes to any high schooler looking to expand their knowledge on the subject, or those of his other classes.
This course will acquaint students with the basic components of Christian ecclesiastical architecture, beginning with the basilicas of the late patristic era and moving through the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-Classical and Neo-Gothic.
Class 1: Late patristic basilicas,
Class 2: Romanesque and Gothic,
Class 3: Renaissance and Baroque elements,
Class 4: Revivalism and the Modern Descent
