 From 828 when Venetian Merchants stole the relics of St. Mark from Alexandria to the fall of the Serene Republic of Venice to Napoleon in 1797, Venice was the frontier between Europe and Islam. Her painters and architects were profoundly influenced by the textiles, buildings and technological developments of the Islamic world, and we will study outstanding examples of this cross-cultural development.  

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years, and she currently teaches for the OLLI programs at Dominican University and UC Berkeley. She leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
