Prague and Bohemia : Medieval Art, Architecture and Cultural Exchange in Central Europe Paperback / softback
by Zoe Opacic
Part of the The British Archaeological Association Conference Transactions series
This volume is dedicated to the remarkable flourishing of art and architecture in Bohemia, and Prague in particular, as it became the political centre of Charles IV's Holy Roman Empire.
A focus is on cultural exchange, and the links which can be traced through the artwork across Europe.
Topics and buildings under discussion include Prague Cathedral, St Bartholomew's in Kyje, Karlstein Castle, St Stephen's Vienna, aristocratic patronage, chasuble iconography and the Zderad column in Brno.
