The content of the lectures is a visual presentation of the History of Architecture and Material Culture in Europe, which is real, can be seen, visited and can be researched. The purpose of lectures is to give students a brief introduction to the history of European architecture, including the beginnings of the material culture of human civilization that created Europe and its architecture. In addition to an overview of all the important architectural styles of Europe, the lecture is complemented by the cultural history of Europe that preceded the architectural style changes. Material culture, direct evidence of Europe's cultural history, complements the abstract terminology usually used to discuss the history of architecture.
