France in the Middle Ages : customs, classes and conditions by P. L Jacob( Book )

136 editions published between 1800 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 2,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Art must be the faithful expression of a society, since it represents it by its works as it has created them -- undeniable witnesses of its spirit and manners for future generations. But it must be acknowledged that art is only the consequence of the ideas which it expresses; it is the fruit of civilization, not its origin. To understand the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, it is necessary to go back to the source of its art, and to know the life of our fathers; these are two inseparable things, which entwine one another, and become complete one by the other. - Preface
