The Department of Theology is the heart of Notre Dame’s education in faith and reason. Guided by the ideal of “faith seeking understanding,” the faculty engage in critical reflection in six areas: moral theology, world religions and world church, history of Christianity, liturgy, biblical studies, and systematic theology.
How do we penetrate the Renaissance home? While we know plenty about the grand palazzi of the ruling classes, more ordinary households cannot be adequately encompassed in any one type of source nor by means of a single approach. Through the study of books, buildings, objects, spaces, images and archives, the private lives of Renaissance Italians can be glimpsed in snatches. This talk presents the results of a 4-year interdisciplinary study, using such fragments and glimpses to build a picture of domestic activities.
