9780131833418: Romanesque Art (Perspectives)

Taking a fresh look at the long-unappreciated art and culture of Europe between 1050 and 1200, Petzold examines medieval European art in the broader context of its relationship to the art of Byzantium and Islam. He traces the influences among these cultures through trade and the Crusades to reveal a culture that is rich and varied, sophisticated and refined. 117 illustrations, 106 in color. Map.

From the Publisher:

Presents the Romanesque period, from 1050 to 1200 A.D., through an entirely new approach; including discussions of issues important to the period. Among these are society, the role of women, patronage, and the development of institutions such as the monastery and the university. This approach serves to enliven a period in art and culture that had been previously burdened by reference as "the Dark Ages."
