Book Description

These two volumes brings together Professor Sauerländer’s papers on Romanesque art, and complement his two previously published volumes in this series on Gothic art.

The studies are again grouped around a number of common themes: structures, problems of classification, the geography of Romanesque art, and its development in Italy and the Empire. Early studies have been updated with references to the more recent literature, and there is a comprehensive index.
