Western cultural heritage
Western cultural heritage is divided into three periods: ancient (3000 BCE to 500 CE), medieval (500 to 1500 CE—which is comprised of the Early Middle Ages (500-
1000), the High Middle Ages (1000-1300) and the Late Middle Ages (1300-1500)–and modern (1400 to today; we are only concerned with 1400-1600 in this course however).
In these periods, the arts were intertwined with political, social and economic events. According to the text, “The creative accomplishments of an age tend to
reflect a shared perspective.”
For your paper, choose an artist(s) or creative individual(s) from one of these time periods, and make a case for how that person’s works were influenced by the
times in which he/she lived. For example, Dante’s Divine Comedy epitomized the ideals of the High Middle Ages. Another example is how the creators of the Gothic
cathedrals were in part proclaiming the new economic well being of the times.
