Mont-Saint-Michel and Chartres by Henry Adams( Book )

74 editions published between 1904 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,936 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Back Cover: Mont Saint Michel and Chartres is a record not of a literal journey but of a meditative journey across time and space into the medieval imagination. Using the architecture, sculpture, and stained glass of the two locales as a starting point, Adams breathes life into what others might see merely as monuments of a past civilization. With daring and inventive conceits, Adams looks at the ordinary people, places, and events in the context of the social conventions and systems of thought and belief of the thirteenth century, turning the study of history into a kind of theater. As Raymond Carney discusses in his introduction, Adam's freedom from the European traditions of study lends exuberance-and puckish wit-to his writings

"This book examines the life and works of a major architect whose buildings today surpass him in recognition. In the early twentieth century - a time when modernism was favored over classicism, and architectural iconoclasm over tradition - the commissions of Ralph Adams Cram were inspired by elegant practicality, mystical philosophies, and a keen sense of history and place. Among them were such religious masterpieces as St. John the Divine in New York City, the chapel at West Point, and campus architecture at Princeton."--Jacket
