    Description:

    A large medieval abbey church in the city Saint-Denis, now a northern suburb of Paris. Its choir, completed in 1144, shows the first use of all of the elements of Gothic architecture. Both stylistically and structurally, the Basilica heralded the change from Romanesque architecture to Gothic architecture. The basilica became a place of pilgrimage and the burial place of the French Kings with nearly every king from the 10th to the 18th centuries being buried there, as well as many from previou…

    Description:

    A Catholic cathedral in Strasbourg, Alsace, France. Although considerable parts of it are still in Romanesque architecture, it is widely considered to be among the finest examples of high, or late, Gothic architecture. Today it is the sixth-tallest church in the world and the highest extant structure built entirely in the Middle Ages.

    Description:

    The eight huge stained-glass windows (15 m height) of the choir were made by different workshops, roughly between 1423 and 1430.

    Pilgrimage and parish church in Alsace. It contains an important assemblage of late medieval art. It is one of the most ornate Gothic churches in the whole Upper Rhenish region (Alsace, Baden, North-Western Switzerland, Palatinate). With the encouragement of the Habsburgs and a rise in pilgrimage in the 14th and 15th centuries, a large church was begun ca. 1330, be…

It is one of the most ornate Gothic churches in the whole Upper Rhenish region (Alsace, Baden, North-Western Switzerland, Palatinate). With the encouragement of the Habsburgs and a rise in pilgrimage in the 14th and 15th centuries, a large church was begun ca. 1330, becoming collegiate in 1442. The church shows the influence of the Parler workshop: it has no transept. The building was finished af…

    Description:

    This image is flopped.

    At the east end the seven-bay hemicycle is ringed by a single ambulatory with spacious radiating chapels. The transept has limited projection and no towers. At the west end the five-aisled nave is terminated by a three-bay façade. The interior is particularly harmonious, with proportions (height equals twice the span of the central vessel) that are modest and stable. Work began at the base of the choir hemicycle ca. 1200. The Parisian Martin Chambiges was invited to Tr…

    Description:

    The cathedral is famous for the 325 reliefs decorating the embrasures of the west portals, which date from the episcopate (1308–22) of Pierre de Savoie. The reliefs representing frolicking lovers from the Lai d'Aristote are remarkable for their subtle modelling and the composition of the figures in relation to the frame.

    The cathedral was rebuilt from 1170 to 1180 by Bishop Guichard. The conservatism of the canons is apparent in such archaisms as a bench for the clergy round the inside o…

    Description:

    The cathedral was rebuilt from 1170 to 1180 by Bishop Guichard. The conservatism of the canons is apparent in such archaisms as a bench for the clergy round the inside of the apse; in the very traditional plan (a seven-sided polygonal apse leading out of a straight-ended choir, with squared-off side chapels); and in the style, which is still Romanesque, with blind arcading, fluted pilasters in the triforium, and triple windows in the straight bays. The Gothic style first appears in the transe…

    Description:

    A former Roman Catholic cathedral. It was formerly the seat of the Bishopric of Noyon, abolished by the Concordat of 1801 and merged into the Diocese of Beauvais. The cathedral was constructed on the site of a church burned down in 1131 and is a fine example of the transition from Romanesque to Gothic architecture. In plan it is a Latin cross; the height of the nave vaulting is 23 m. The west front has a porch, added in the 14th century, and two unfinished towers, their upper portions dating …

    Description:

    The construction of the cathedral lasted more than three centuries and reflected not only successive styles but also influences coming alternately from east and west of the city. The architectural diversity is matched by that of the sculpture, each including some of the most original works of the Middle Ages. The stained glass constitutes the most extensive medieval ensemble in France after Chartres Cathedral. From 1459 the architect of Strasbourg assumed the rank of supreme judge of all the …

    Description:

    The architect who finished the choir around 1250 came from the Paris area and worked in a Rayonnant style. His shafts are very attenuated; he used star-shaped abaci in straight bays; and his window tracery designs, with piled trilobes, derive from the Sainte-Chapelle. His training handling bar tracery made him the ideal architect for the vast clerestory.

    The cathedral, which combines a Romanesque nave and a High Gothic choir, is notable for its rich collection of stained glass and the specta…
