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. Many of the learning materials presented in this course will be adapted from the Roman Architecture course Professor Kleiner provided as part of the Open Yale Courses project. The lectures are illustrated with over 1,500 images, many from Professor Kleiner's personal collection.
