This book is a sublime example of scholarship in its highest form. That being said it is not a book for the casual reader. Panofsky does not insult your intelligence but expects you to think. This book would be an excellent addition, indeed an mandatory one, for any library of history. I would also recommend this book to anyone studying the 12th-13th centuries. I have read and re-read this book again and again soaking up Panofsky's prose and relishing his intensity of thought regarding a shadowy period in our history. It is a mindopener to the mystery of why gothic architecture looks like it does.
