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

169 editions published between 1956 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 3,360 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 Georg von Simson( Book )

44 editions published between 1948 and 2003 in English and held by 1,060 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." --From cover
