Architecture of the Middle Ages [Hardcover]

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

1 April 2004
Breathtaking buildings were constructed in medieval Europe for the glory of God and the powerful clients that commissioned them. They served sacred purposes or allowed their inhabitants to withdraw from the hurly burly of life - churches and monasteries. A large part of this book is dedicated to Europe’s religious architecture of the Middle Ages from Pre-Romanesque to Gothic. It was only in the 11th century that the number of fortified castles, city palaces and other secular buildings began to increase. The final chapter on the secular architecture of the Middle Ages is dedicated to these buildings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Think of it as a book on scupture 13 Sep 2005

This is a beautiful book. I loved it on first sight, and have continued to enjoy it. This is not a book only for those loving Romanesque and Medieval architecture. Anyone enjoying endless examples of eye-pleasing three dimensional compositions of pure geometric solids, will love this book. The designers of these time periods were really on to something. Have we lost touch with it? My only frustration with the book was being able to identify the country each building was located in. I recommend this book particularly at the Amazon price.
