"Water, Power, and Beauty: Aqueducts and Fountains in Medieval Italy"
Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, 6:15 p.m., West Norman Public Library, 300 Norman Center Ct., Norman, OK 73072

The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series cosponsored by the OU Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies presents "Water, Power, and Beauty: Aqueducts and Fountains in Medieval Italy" by Dr. Roberta Magnusson.

Underlying Italy's ancient aqueducts and Baroque fountains lies a complex system of hydraulic engineering shaped by barbarian invasions, the rise of the medieval papacy, the emergence of independent city-states, the advent of the Renaissance, and the arrival of the Counter-Reformation. The history of medieval Italy's hydraulic engineering is a mix of continuity and discontinuity, rediscovery, and re-purposing, as new patrons adapted an ancient technology to serve new religious and political agendas.

Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning!
No papers, no tests, just interesting information about life long ago.
