Feast on Medieval Theology, Spirituality, and Art
Sojourn to the medieval hilltop town of Orvieto, Italy—surrounded by art and beauty—where there is no better place to study medieval art. You will be immersed in Italian culture, both present and past, giving you the opportunity to dive deeply and holistically into a rich feast of theology, spirituality, and art. The experience includes daily course gatherings, trips to a variety of medieval religious and artistic sites in Orvieto, as well as day trips to Siena and Assisi.
You will live and study as a community in the historic San Lodovico Convent—itself an experience. There are two day trips, as well as two free days to explore the surrounding area (Orvieto is only a two-hour train ride away from Florence). Students registered for credit can fulfill one of the required spiritual formation courses (IS501) as part of this experience. Moreover, TC519 is only offered on this trip, and since this immersion course is only offered every other year, most students in a two-year program have only one chance to take this opportunity.
