    Description:

    The pulpit of the Siena Cathedral was sculpted between the end of 1265 and November 1268 by Nicola Pisano with the extensive participation of his son Giovanni Pisano and his assistants Arnolfo di Cambio and Lapo di Ricevuto. The pulpit was altered between 1329 and 1542, when the shaped pedestal was added; the compositional and visual sequence of the reliefs was also altered by the repositioning of the pulpit after the Council of Trent. The staircase dates from 1543 and was built by Bartolomeo…

    Description:

    Prato developed a Romanesque architectural style of its own, influenced by the architecture of Pisa, Lucca and Lombardy, which was best exemplified in the colorful, striped, marble interior of the nave and cloisters of the cathedral, which was rebuilt from 1211 by Guidetto da Como (active ca. 1204-1211). Gothic arches and vaulting, the presbytery and its five chapels and the five-storey campanile were added in the 14th century. The upper stage of the bell tower was constructed in 1356. During…

    Description:

    Appears to be in a museum and is likely a plaster cast. Giovanni Pisano’s pulpit in Pisa Cathedral, was probably commissioned by Burgundio di Tadio, Operaio of the Cathedral Works, who is recorded in the inscription; it replaced an earlier pulpit by Guglielmo, now in Cagliari Cathedral. The pulpit was dismantled after a fire in 1595 and has suffered much damage from restorations, particularly those of Peleo Bacci (1926-1929). This, the most sumptuous of the Pisano pulpits, is of unprecede…

    Description:

    The early 12th-century church of St. Front, Périgueux is a close copy either of San Marco in Venice or its model the Holy Apostles (destroyed) in Constantinople. Such a connection can only mean that the patrons were embarking on a bid to have Saint Front, a shadowy figure who converted the region in antiquity, raised to a status equivalent to that of the Apostles themselves. This bid was probably inspired because the church was one of the pilgrimage sites on the route to the Cathedral of Sant…

    Description:

    The enormous wooden pulpit dates from 1855 and was designed by a priest named Choyer. Its carvings illustrate the theme of the Word of God, with Moses on the left side and St. John receiving his revelation on the right.

    The cathedral of St. Maurice is a fine representative of the regional style known as Angevin Gothic. Its characteristic single-nave construction gives it a smoothly unified exterior broken only by the two west towers. This powerful spatial unity is also evident in the clarity…

    Pulpit visible on the right.

The church has a cruciform plan with an aisleless nave of three bays, a transept and choir with radiating, apsidal chapels. The nave and…

    Description:

    The cathedral is the tallest complete cathedral in France. (Beauvais is incomplete).

    The cathedral, dedicated to Notre-Dame, is a classic example of 13th-century architecture and sculpture. Built between 1220 and ca. 1270, it replaced a complex of episcopal buildings. The names of the architects are known from the labyrinth (destroyed 18th century; reconstructed 1894-1897) that in 1288 was set into the floor of the nave: Robert de Luzarches, Thomas de Cormont and Regnault de Cormont. The cat…
