Filled with fascinating insights into the creation of Gothic-style churches and cathedrals, this sweeping survey also provides lively observations of the medieval period. In a rich retrospective of ecclesiastical architecture through the Middle Ages, the Gothic style shines through in 158 expert illustrations. Details of church windows, moldings, doorways, piers and arches, roofs, porches, panels, hinges, and more reveal the intricate geometry of classic Gothic design. That this style possesses many features in themselves highly meritorious, we readily admit ; yet on the one hand, we trace in it all the impress of a lingering barbarism, and on the other, true to its Roman prototype, it is shackled even in its noblest efforts by the characteristick horizontality of classick architecture.
