Synopsis: Book by Mouilleron, Veronique Rouchon

From the Publisher: The great abbey church of Sainte-Madeleine, or Mary Magdalene, at Vzelay in Burgundy, France, is one of the wonders of the medieval world. Begun in 1120 in the Romanesque style, it was finished in the next century in the Gothic style. As this book's specially commissioned photographs reveal, its remarkable beauty results from its unique blending of Romanesque and Gothic sections-and from its sublime sculpture. The massive semicircles of stone that crown the church's main doors and the capitals of the interior columns, shown here in numerous close-up details, are richly carved with figures from the Bible and Christian legend. The illuminating text includes captions that guide readers through the church, sculpture by sculpture, truly bringing this magnificent abbey alive. 145 illustrations in full color, 911/8 x 12" Vronique Rouchon Mouilleron teaches med ieval art history at the Sorbonne in Paris. Daniel Faure is the author of a number of works on the art and culture of France.
