Courses: In Vino Veritas (CSTSB225001)

Spring 2013

Class Number: 1010
This course will explore ancient Greeks' and Roman' perception of wine-drinking as a sacral experience, often of critical cultural, social, and even cosmic importance. We will study the cult of Dionysus and the role of wine in Greek and Latin poetry, drama, and philosophy. We will then trace the development of these religious and cultural trends in subsequent Western history, to the medieval tradition of the carnival and to twentieth-century literature.
