Early Middle Ages - From Late Antiquity to A. D. 1000

Author(s): Barral I. Barral I Altet/Huber


This well-illustrated and informative guide to the architecture of Europe between the 4th and 9th centuries argues that the early Middle Ages was not simply an intermediate period between Roman and Romanesque art but that it had its own distinct and well-defined character. The study, which is inevitably dominated by churches, chapels and cathedrals, discusses the impact of Christianity on the architecture of Late Antiquity, the development of individual national styles and the innovations of the Carolingian empire. Each section is illustrated with numerous colour photographs.
