Dr. Charles Anthony Stewart is the Associate Professor of Art History in the Department of Art and Architecture at Benedictine College (Atchison, KS). He specializes in the development of Late Roman and Early Medieval technology and architecture, especially in the eastern Mediterranean region and Central Asia. In general, his research investigates transitional periods of history, as well as artistic, technological, and economic exchange between neighboring cultures.
These interests have led him to study the development of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity in Central Asia, North Africa and Europe.
Regarding periods, his publications have explored the development of classical Greek and Roman Art and its continuity and adaptation into the early Middle Ages. His present research, likewise, explores intellectual movements, such as humanism and scholasticism, within the late Middle Ages that led to the Renaissance artistic norms.
