"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
From the times of turmoil and civil strife around 1000 C.E., the Church was a source of stability and peace, and monasteries and abbeys influenced land development and urban growth. Architecture professor Minne-S ve and sculptor Kergall here focus on the development of Romanesque and Gothic architecture at that time. The authors have abundant examples of French church architecture to examine, along with related relief sculpture, wall paintings, and some stained glass. The book is flush with splendid photo spreads of the buildings and individual architectural features, showing the effect and spirit of the structures as well as fine details. While the organization of the book is a little loose the structure of periods and regions gives way to small diversions into other contemporary artistic influences the text is quite enjoyable and fluid. A useful illustrated glossary of architectural terms is appended. Recommended for larger general libraries or any specialized art history collection. Karen Ellis, Nicholson Memorial Lib. Syst., Garland, TX

While the text traces the history of Romanesque and Gothic architecture and sculpture in France, the brilliant array of color photographs offers a breathtaking visual tour of two of the most stylistically significant periods in the modern era. Since most medieval art and architecture was church-centered, the authors examine all of the major cathedrals as well as some of the less well known ecclesiastical gems. In addition to painting a broad overview of the Gothic and Romanesque periods, regional preferences and peculiarities are also addressed on a province-by-province basis. A sumptuous feast for both the eyes and the soul. Margaret Flanagan
