About the Website

The image in the background of the above banner is a detail of Helicon, or Minerva's Visit to the Muses, by the Flemish Baroque-era painter Joos de Momper II (1564–1635). As Classical symbols for all of the disciplines of the liberal arts and sciences, the muses represent the subjects that we teach in our courses. This particular representation of the muses by a painter of the Baroque era was selected to represent the enduring influence of Classical ideals.

The typeface in the banner is Trajan Pro, a font inspired by the inscriptions in Trajan's Forum.
