Classics Abroad 2022
Our signature one-week summer course for Classics lovers in Florence! What's the link between Classics and Florence? Not only does Florence have its own classical past dating back to the Etruscans but it is also known as the birthplace of the Renaissance i.e. the "rebirth" of classical antiquity. An insight into this period is an insight into 'Classics' as we know it. You will study the classical roots of Florence, the transmission of classical texts and ideas, and the formation of Classics through Florentine literature, art, history and religion. This course is an unforgettable and dynamic combination of classroom-based study and first-hand experience in context. It includes enrolment in a cultural programme of events such as fresco-making, wine-tasting and site visits.
