Synopsis: This remarkable book is a comprehensive examination of the art and architecture of European monasteries, from early Carolingian examples in the eighth century to a modern structure by Le Corbusier in 1960, featuring an authoritative text and more than five hundred stunning, full-color photographs.

This unsurpassed survey offers a fresh chronicle of a largely overlooked subject and hundreds of marvelous images, many of them newly photographed, of more than 150 of the most interesting and best preserved monasteries in Spain, Portugal, France, Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Italy—all of which are accessible to visitors. Here are unique views of the art and architecture of such treasured places as Mont St. Michel, a wondrous Benedictine sanctuary off the coast of Brittany, and the fabled pilgrimage site in Assisi founded by St. Francis.

In an insightful text the author describes the cultural heritage of each of the monasteries portrayed and provides an introduction to monasticism and to the various orders dating from the early Christian era to the present. In addition, the volume offers plans of the sites, a glossary, and a bibliography. Historians and collectors of great books of art history will be intrigued by this unsurpassed collection of photographs and fascinating account of the artistic glory of European monasteries.

About the Author: Bernhard Schütz, a renowned scholar of medieval and Baroque architecture, is a professor of architectural history at the University of Munich and the author of Great Cathedrals of Europe.

Henri Gaud, Joseph Martin, Florian Monheim, Antonio Quattrone, Ghigo Roli, and Marco Schneiders are all leading photographers of works of art.

Book Description Mit diesem Prachtband hat man alles richtig gemacht, denn das vielseitige, interessante Thema ist so spannend und sinnlich aufbereitet, dass man sich nicht davon lösen kann. Herrliche neue Bilder all der hier angeführten Klosteranlagen, aus karolingischer Zeit bis zum modernistischen Baukörper von Le Corbusier, in Verbindung mit einem aufschlussreichen und wohl strukturierten Text entsteht eine Chronik der 150 bedeutendsten Klöster Europas, wie sie informativer und schöner nicht sein könnte. Als Zentren von Religion, Macht und Bildung waren Klöster seit jeher wesentlich für die Entwicklung von Kunst, Buchmalerei, für die Religionsgeschichte, die Philosophie. Alle hier vorgestellten Monasterien sind der Öffentlichkeit zugänglich, und so ist dieses Buch auch für die Urlaubsplanung überaus hilfreich. Jede Anlage ist mit ihrer Geschichte und ihrem künstlerischen Erbe vorgestellt, sehr nützlich die Grundrisse und Pläne, das anhängige Glossar und die Hinweise auf weiterführende Literatur. (Text englisch). 27 x 32,5 cm, 491 Seiten, 550 farbige Abbildungen und Tafeln, Leinen. Seller Inventory # 641847
