Abbot Suger of St.-Denis : church and state in early twelfth-century France by Lindy Grant( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lindy Grant's comprehensive study of this multifaceted figure is a major event. Derived from a fresh reading of the primary sources, it is the first full biography of Suger in English. It provides a much-needed corrective to many of the current ideas about him. Based on the fragmented modern literature (itself usually written from an art-historical angle), these have tended to set Suger in artificial isolation, and as a result to exaggerate both his role as a doer and his originality as a thinker. While saluting his energy in all these many fields, Lindy Grant - by seeing him whole, and setting him firmly in the full historical context of the twelfth century - shows how far he was in fact a man of his times rather than a man ahead of them
Architecture and society in Normandy 1120 to 1270 by Lindy Grant( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This wide-ranging book explores the architecture - principally ecclesiastical - of Normandy from 1120 to 1270, a period of profound social, cultural and political change. In 1204, control of the Duchy of Normandy passed from the hands of the Anglo-Norman/Angevin descendants of William the Conqueror to the Capetian kingdom of France. The book examines the enormous cultural impact of this political change and places the architecture of the time in the context of the Normans' complicated sense of their own identity. It is the first book to consider the inception and development of Gothic architecture in Normandy and the first to establish a reliable chronology of the buildings."--Jacket
Blanche of Castile, Queen of France by Lindy Grant( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and German and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first modern scholarly biography of Blanche of Castile, whose identity until now has been subsumed by her son, the saintly Louis IX. A central figure in the politics and diplomacy of medieval Europe, Blanche was a sophisticated patron of religion and culture. Through Lindy Grant's account, based on a close analysis of Blanche's household accounts and of the social and religious networks on which her power and agency depended, Blanche is revealed as an effective and innovative ruler, with a vibrant and intellectually questioning personality. -- Adapted from the book jacket
Westminster Abbey : the Cosmati pavements( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Westminster Abbey: The Cosmati pavements is the first in-depth examination of Westminster Abbey's two beautiful and mysterious inlaid pavements. Who made them, and when? Why did the King and Abbot have them brought from Rome? Mostly made up of recycled stones from ancient Roman buildings, the pavement on which monarchs have been crowned since the thirteenth century has an inscription predicting the end of the world, linking the distant past and the remote future with complex symbolism."
