Summary

Summary

The Romanesque period was during the high Middle Ages, and is so called because of its use of that typical classical Roman architectural device - the arch. The text looks mainly at architecture, starting off with a section on building styles, and then each chapter takes you off round Europe and Scandinavia to see the results. Stunning photographs on almost every page, most of which have been commissioned exclusively for this volume, and the sculpture offers a remarkable insight into the lives, hopes and fears of the times.
