Program Details - Core 250 in Europe

Visit Rome, Florence, Paris, and London--as well as nearby sites. See where Western intellectual history unfolded as you visit archaeological sites, museums, and palaces. Explore the ruins of Ostia Antica while learning about the Stoic and Epicurean philosophies of the ancient Romans. Listen to a lecture on Teresa of Avila in front of Bernini's statue of her in Rome. Talk about Calvin and the Reformation in St. Peter's Square and then be blessed by the Pope. See Michelangelo's magnificent David in Florence and learn how he fits the Renaissance ideal. Hear about Galileo as you look at the Leaning Tower of Pisa where he studied the effects of falling objects. Compare the splendor of Versailles to Locke's ideal government. Discuss Kant using the Impressionist art of the Orsay Museum in Paris as an example. Consider the skyline of London in terms of Postmodernism. Examine C.S. Lewis's radical critiques of the modern age sitting in his church outside Oxford.
