Ciolac, Alexandra

Course Title: The Aesthetics of Jainism

Course Description: In this course, we will be looking at important figures and moments of Jain narrative history and using artistic expressions such as paintings, illustrated manuscripts, and temple sculptures as points of entry of our exploration of literary traditions. Through investigating the "why", the "how", and the "when" behind the motivations of our artists, we will endeavor to grasp some of the central concepts of Jain religious traditions.
