Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

“Seidenstraße”, is a term coined at the end of the 19th c. and refers to an ancient trade road connecting eastern Asia to the western Mediterranean world. Today the term Silk Road (or Silk Roads) denotes rather a network of routes than a single road, and refers as well to the regions of central Asia crossed by it. First mentionings in historical sources attesting commercial relations between China and the West date back to the Former Han period, in the 2nd c. BCE. The peak of commercial traffic was reached in the 6th -8th c. CE, producing an exchange not only of goods, but also of cultures and ideas.
The course will focus on the eastern extension of the Silk Road, namely: the two branches (northern and southern) contouring the Taklamakan desert in Chinese central Asia (largely modern Xinjiang). The rich artistic production of the caravan oasis cities that flourished along these routes reflects the extraordinary cultural interconnections that occurred in that region during the first millennium of our era.
