Notre-Dame, Cathedral of Amiens : the power of change in Gothic by Stephen Murray( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Notre Dame, Cathedral of Amiens: The power of Change in Gothic is a comprehensive study of one of the most ambitious building programs of the High Middle Ages. Offering a new approach to the traditional building monograph, Stephen Murray critically reexamines the documentary, archaeological, and historiographical evidence; contemporary theological debates; as well as the social, political, and economic contexts in which Amiens was conceived and erected. By integrating these various data, Murray proposes a new chronology for the cathedral and, moreover, reconceptualizes our understanding of the nature of medieval building campaigns, emphasizing the dynamics of change that occurred during the course of construction. This revisionist study includes a newly surveyed plan of Amiens, transcripts of key documents, and 195 black-and-white illustrations, many made especially for this edition

Plotting gothic by Stephen Murray( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A historian of medieval art and architecture with a rich appreciation of literary studies, Stephen Murray brings all those fields to bear on a new approach to understanding the great Gothic churches of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. Plotting Gothic positions the rhetoric of the Gothic as a series of three interlocking plots: a spatial plot tied to the material construction of the churches, a social plot stemming from the collaborative efforts that made Gothic output possible, and a rhetorical plot involving narratives that treat the churches as objects of desire. Drawing on the testimony of three witnesses involved in church building -- Abbot Suger of Saint-Denis, Gervase of Canterbury, and the image maker Villard de Honnecourt -- and a range of secondary sources, Murray traces common patterns in the way medieval buildings were represented in words and images. Our witnesses provide vital information about the way the great churches of Gothic were built and the complexity of their meanings. Taking a fresh approach to Gothic architecture, Plotting Gothic offers an invigorating new way to understand some of the most lasting achievements of the medieval era."--
