Detailed description :La France romane au temps des premiers Capétiens (987-1152)

La France romane au temps des premiers Capétiens (987-1152)

Under the direction of Danielle  Gaborit-Chopin

€ 39.60 tax included

France certainly has the richest Romanesque heritage in Europe. Far from the negative images of the monolithic and somber Middle Ages, the Romanesque period emerges as a genuine artistic genesis, a time of proliferation and creative freedom. This book encompasses two and a half decisive centuries for the history of France, ranging from the collapse of the Carolingian Empire to the establishment of feudalism, when the reorganization of the Church gave rise to a network of large monastic centers that were to become major cultural and artistic hubs.
