5 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A thousand years ago, the French abbey of Cluny was the hub of one of the most powerful empires of the Middle Ages and the spiritual heart of Europe. Cluny was a Benedictine monastery in Burgundy, its church a breathtaking structure of towers, roofs, walls, and windows almost 600 feet long and 100 feet high--a true wonder of the world. Reconstructing the lives, beliefs, and ambitions of Cluny's countless monks and legendary abbots, this book discusses the abbey and its network of 1,500 dependent monasteries in the context of medieval European history. Exploring a monastery like no other, this historical account investigates Cluny's enduring legacy through the great cultural innovations that the abbey sponsored, from the famous medieval pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela to some of the most magnificent churches in all of France and England.--From publisher description

'1000 Masterpieces from the Great Museums of the World' is one of the most successful TV series about art. The original, with improved image quality, takes us on a fascinating journey through the history of art. Comprehensively illustrated and compellingly presented - the well-known authors of five short art surveys provide a deeper insight into the masterpieces of painting. The late 18th and early 19th centuries are regarded as a radical period in British art, in which artists responded to industrialisation and social change with new forms of genre painting and portraiture. Names like Wright of Derby, McTaggart, Wilkie, Raeburn and Millais symbolise a period of upheaval - a time of both reflection and reorientation. Sir John Everett Millais: OPHELIA (1851-52) Joseph Wright of Derby: AN EXPERIMENT ON A BIRD IN THE AIR PUMP (1767/68) William McTaggart: THE STORM (1890) Sir David Wilkie: WILLIAM BETHUNE, HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER (1804) Sir Henry Raeburn: REVEREND ROBERT WALKER SKATING (1784)
The popes of Avignon : a century in exile by Edwin Mullins( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like the finest medieval tapestry, this narrative history masterfully weaves together the sweeping events surrounding what has become known as the "Babylonian captivity" of the popes into the broader story of 14th-century Europe-one of the most turbulent times in the continent's history. It was a time of fear, ferocity, and religious agony, which saw the suppression of the Knights Templar and the Cathars, the first onslaught of the plague, and the beginning of the Hundred Years' War. The century also produced some of the greatest writers and artists in the western tradition, including Giotto, Boccaccio, Petrarch, and Chaucer. Central to this period was the movement of the papal seat from Rome to Avignon in the south of France, where seven successive popes held power from 1309-1377. The drama, intrigue, and tumult associated with the papacy in exile forms the perfect lens through which to clearly see a Europe making the transition from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance
