An exploratory journey in an era marked by great upheavals, but also by the reduction of the role played by the Court and the clergy. "Romanesque art is the first artistic era which embraced all of medieval Europe. It is seen to take birth around the year 1000 and - if one takes into account the late forms which appear in Germany and Italy - it does not end until the middle of the 12th century. Going back centuries, some chapters of this work also include in their considerations Carolingian art and Ottonian art - the latter in Germanic country." -dust jacket excerpt.
