Call for applications for Adult Learners;

An International Seminar in Orvieto Italy, December 30, 2016-January 14, 2017 sponsored by the Center for Faith and Inquiry at Gordon College in Wenham, MA and the Studio for Art, Faith, and History.

The Theme for the Seminar is:  Harmony in the Cosmos?: Exploration in Western Music, Art and Architecture.

Seminar Description:
In the classical world, music was one of the basic subjects of liberal arts education. The mathematical harmonies of music were understood as the key to the structure of the cosmos and to the well-being of communities and individuals – as well as to the formal beauty and inspirational effect of architecture and the arts. The January 2017 Winter Seminar (a) explores this central role of Music in classical and early Christian thought, (b) studies its relation to the actual practice of architecture, the visual arts, and music, and (c) compares pre-modern understanding of the nature and effect of music with that of our own time.

Instructors:
Dr. Graeme Bird
Dr. John Skillen
