Most widely held works by Otto von Simson
The Gothic cathedral : origins of Gothic architecture and the medieval concept of order by Otto von Simson( Book )

154 editions published between 1956 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gothic Cathedral is the most stimulating and comprehensive work on the subject to date. . . . If the cathedrals are to be understood, Mr. von Simson rightly declares, they must be seen not in the light of twentieth-century esthetic observation, but of twelfth-century religious experience, through which the supernatural permeated every aspect of human existence. . . . The resulting interpretation of the monuments is a critical tour de force."--Allan Temko, The New York Times Book Review
Sacred fortress; Byzantine art and statecraft in Ravenna by Otto von Simson( Book )

47 editions published between 1948 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is devoted to three churches in ancient Ravenna that were built during the reign of Emperor Justinian in the decisive period of his administration and, at least in part, at his command. Sant' Appollinare in Classe, Sant' Apollinare Nuovo, and San Vitale, with their architecture and their famous mosaics largely intact, are perhaps the greatest surviving monuments of the early period of Christian art, which not only culminate but ends with them. Otto von Simson emphasizes the complex political, religious, and liturgical themes of the mosaics in these sanctuaries, providing important insights into the Byzantine society of the sixth century. this edition includes forty-eight pages of improved illustrations."--Cover

La catedral gótica : los orígenes de la arquitectura gótica y el concepto medieval de orden by Otto von Simson( Book )

28 editions published between 1980 and 2000 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ningún otro monumento de una cultura pasada nos resulta aún tan próximo como la catedral gótica, firmemente inserta en la vida de nuestras ciudades. Pero esa misma familiaridad ha inducido a ver como algo casi "natural" lo que de hecho es un organismo artístico de extremada complejidad. La catedral gótica pretende corregir tal error de visión, reconstruir el entramado de factores teológicos, estéticos, sociales y políticos que dieron origen a la formación del gótico, y con ella a una de las más radicales rupturas estilistas que ha conocido la arquitectura occidental
