The Architecture of the Scottish Medieval Church, 1100-1560, Hardback Book

The Architecture of the Scottish Medieval Church, 1100-1560 Hardback

Part of the The Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art series

Description

The first in-depth survey of Scotland's medieval church architecture covers buildings constructed between the early 12th century and the Reformation in 1560.

From majestic cathedrals and abbeys to modest parish churches and chapels, Richard Fawcett places the architecture in context by considering the varied sources of ideas that underlay church designs.

Over the centuries, Scottish patrons and their masons moved away from a close relationship with England to create a unique late medieval architectural synthesis that took ideas from a wide range of sources.

The book concludes with an account of the impact of the Reformation on church construction and design.
