Studies in English Pre-Romanesque and Romanesque Architecture, Hardback Book

Studies in English Pre-Romanesque and Romanesque Architecture Hardback


These two volumes, which have been published separately, present a collection of Richard Gem's archaeological and architectural assessments of individual buildings written over the last 25 years which, together, form an overview of the development of English church architecture from the 7th to the 12th century.

He demonstrates that English sacred architecture has to be placed within a broader European context and cannot be simply classified as pre- or post-Norman conquest.

Volume I presents 15 essays which focus on Pre-Romanesque styles and themes, Anglo-Saxon churches and minsters, Carolingian structures in France and England, and Pre-Romanesque architecture in England.

Volume II focuses on specific medieval Romanesque churches in England.

Each volume must be purchased separately but pagination continues in Volume II.
