For the first time, instructors of Medieval Architecture have a selective survey that obviates the need to piece together teaching material from several sources. Medieval Architecture in Western Europe: From A.D. 300 to 1500 presents a selection of major monuments of Medieval European architecture in a single volume. Beginning with a study of structural antecedents found in late Roman architecture, the author examines Early Christian borrowings and transformations and selected representative types of Byzantine buildings. The following chapters cover the development of the monastic complex, traditional forms of Northern timber construction, and the contributions of the Carolingian and Ottonian empires. Spanish structures from the seventh century through the tenth century set the stage for the development of the Romanesque style, examined in its various regional manifestations. After identifying the structural sources of Gothic architecture, the author presents the evolving regional Gothic styles, Late Gothic elaborations and innovations, and representative types of secular architecture. The text concludes with an informative chapter on medieval building practices and the tradition of the Master Mason.
Medieval Architecture in Western Europe: From A.D. 300 to 1500 is thoroughly illustrated with plans, sections, diagrams, and photographs, and also includes an IBM-compatible CD-ROM, featuring over 800 supplementary views and details of the buildings discussed, all in color. Filling the gap between general surveys of architectural history and specialized works on specific periods and regions, this book is ideal for introductory courses in Medieval Architecture, but will also satisfy any reader with an interest in the Middle Ages.

Robert G. Calkins is a History of Art Professor at Cornell University. He has considerable experience with medieval architecture, having written two other books on this subject, Monuments of Medieval Art and Illuminated Books of the Middle Ages.
"This survey of 1200 years of Western medieval architecture will become a standard introductory text. Calkin's concise descriptions of individual monuments will expand students' understanding and appreciation of the subject. The book offers a remarkable overview of the diversity of building in the period. The photographs and ground plans provide superb visual documentation."--Deborah Kahn, Boston University
"Fills a gap that has existed for quite some time. The monuments are judiciously selected, and the material is up to date for a survey. The CD is great for our electronic classroom."--Harry Titus, Wake Forest University
"Clear, compact exposition, well chosen illustrations, clearly reproduced, splendid bibliography. I like the support given by the footnotes, which will encourage further reading."--John M. Schnurrenberg, University of Alabama at Birmingham

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 1998. Mixed media product. Estado de conservación: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book. Medieval Architecture in Western Europe covers the entire period of European Medieval architecture from c. 300 to c.1500. It offers a basic introduction with appropriate plans, sections, and photographs, all in one single volume. Concerned about the perceived gap in current art history books in regards to medieval architecture, the author is careful to examine selected major monuments, incorporating just the right amount of detail to provide the basic information needed to learn about each type of building, and to impart a sense of continuity and development of structure, form, and function across Europe and through the different periods of the Middle Ages. The author explores the contextual role of the buildings in their settings and the symbolic impact of both exterior and interior forms, paying particular attention to their experiential qualities. The book is heavily illustrated with photographs, plans, sections, and diagrams. Remarkably thorough in its coverage, Medieval Architecture in Western Europe will not only appeal to the general reader who has little or no prior knowledge of medieval architecture, but will also keep the interest of those who are more knowledgeable about the subject.
