On Wednesday, March 27, members of the Buffalo community learned about medieval art and architecture with Eileen Sullivan, professor of fine arts at Canisius College.
Part of the Institute for Classical and Medieval Studies (ICMS) Lifelong Learners Center, this six-week course discusses topics such as illuminated manuscripts, art of the pilgrimage and cathedrals. This past Wednesday, the class examined a replica of The Book of Kells housed in the library. Past courses examined heroes, the development of the British monarchy, the Seven Wonders of the World and the Persian Wars.
ICMS is planning for the 2019-20 season. Visit the ICMS website for more information about the Lifelong Learners’ courses and other events and programs as they become available.
