Dodds s analyses of such churches as San Pedro de la Nave, San Julian de los Prados at Oviedo, and San Miguel de Escalada should make it difficult for art historians to continue to ignore the contribution of Spain in their assessments of European architecture before the year 1000. Further, Dodds s book may inspire some of those same art historians not only to add new monuments to their canon of research-worthy buildings, but also, more generally to modify the questions they ask of their monuments. The author is unwilling to limit her consideration to the dates of buildings, their typologies and technologies. Each section of [the book] raises issues in addition to those of chronology and form. . . . Dodds s [volume] is notable for its methodological sophistication as well as its archaeological and descriptive sensitivity. The work marks a significant advance in our knowledge of an understudied area of European architectural history. Just as significantly, this book also provides medieval architectural historians with a possible model for rethinking and rewriting the field. Design Book Review"Reseña del editor:
In analyzing the early medieval architecture of Christian and Islamic Spain, Jerrilynn Dodds explores the principles of artistic response to social and cultural tension, offering an account of that unique artistic experience that set Spain apart from the rest of Europe and established a visual identity born of the confrontation of cultures that perceived one another as alien.Architecture and Ideology in Early Medieval Spain covers the Spanish medieval experience from the Visigothic oligarchy to the year 1000, addressing a variety of cases of cultural interchange. It examines the embattled reactive stance of Hispano-Romans to their Visigothic rulers and the Asturian search for a new language of forms to support a political position dissociated from the struggles of a peninsula caught in the grip of a foreign and infidel rule. Dodds then examines the symbolic meaning of the Mozarabic churches of the tenth century and their reflection of the Mozarabs threatened cultural identity.The final chapter focuses on two cases of artistic interchange between Islamic and Christian builders with a view toward understanding the dynamics of such interchange between conflicting cultures. Dodds concludes with a short account of the beginning of Romanesque architecture in Spain and an analysis of some of the ways in which artistic expression can reveal the subconscious of a culture."
