."..this book makes an important point and is a brave attempt to provide the basis for answering at least some of the questions it raises." Eric Fernie, SpeculumVom Verlag:
This history of Romanesque architectural criticism is the first to examine seventeeth through early nineteenth century commentary on medieval architecture and the naming of the Romanesque style. From the time of Giorgio Vasari's Vite (1550) through circa 1818, the portmanteau Gothic often served as a blanket and dismissive term encompassing any non-classical architecture from the disappearance to the revival of the classical style in Renaissance Italy. A study of Romanesque criticism reveails the various stagesin the understanding and naming of Romanesque architecture. This consolidation of literature on Romanesque architecture seeks to break new ground and to prompt others to refine its conclusions.
