Cathedrals have always rallied the interest of researchers and fascinated the general public, often being the very subject or source of inspiration for literary and artistic creation. Over and above their historical dimension, these crowd-drawing monuments represent genuine worlds that enable us to fathom a wide variety of aspects of medieval thought, sensibility and social activity.

This book features contributions by some of the greatest experts in medieval art, providing us with new insight into the “world of cathedrals”.
