This course will explore the rationale of an architecture often ostracized as one of make-believe magnificence, feigned piety, superfluous splendor and decorative deviance: the rococo churches of Bavaria and southern Germany. Each lecture will approach this architecture from a different angle. Will today's temperance be legitimized or rather expiated by these encounters?
