Roman Architecture

by Yale University

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This course is an introduction to the great buildings and engineering marvels of Rome and its empire, with an emphasis on urban planning and individual monuments and their decoration, including mural painting. While architectural developments in Rome, Pompeii, and Central Italy are highlighted, the course also provides a survey of sites and structures in what are now North Italy, Sicily, France, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, and North Africa. The lectures are illustrated with over 1,500 images, many from Professor Kleiner's personal collection.

Fabulous!

Watched this course with my ten year old son to prepare for our vacation in Rome and Capri. We both loved it. "I can't believe there are teachers that good, mommy" . Now he knows opus quadratum, opus incertum and ionic doric, corinthian..we Watched the ara pacis lecture AT the ara pacis. Watched the pompei lecture at the pool in capri (with a view of vesuvius).

AN ASTOUNDING COURSE

WISH THAT I HAD THE PROFESSOR IN COLLEGE. BRINGS EVERYTHING TO LIFE IN A VERY ACCESSIBLE FORM. I HAVE MADE TWO TRIPS TO POMPEII AND CANT WAIT TO RETURN AS I STILL HAVE NOT SEEN IT ALL. THIS IS SUCH A GIFT.

Informative, Troubling, and Incomplete

Wonderful course for getting an overview of Roman architecture, though the professor's "interest" in Mussolini grows more troubling as she speaks of "renewed interest" in him while grinning at the cast and looking to see who might be smiling back at her, it seems.

That and that the final lecture is absent, 30 hours anticipating the Pantheon, then...no Pantheon!
