Medieval

 

Ideas for your home, books and gifts inspired by medieval history and art. Medieval art covers a vast span of almost 1000 years, the visual arts prospered as the wealthiest and most influential members of society commissioned cathedrals, churches, sculpture, painting, textiles, manuscripts, and jewellery. The period encompasses Byzantine, Romanesque and Gothic art, the latter originating in France from about 1137. Gothic architecture created soaring arches and buttresses which allowed for the opening up of walls to large windows. Monumental stained glass was created for such cathedrals as 12th century Chartres and York Minster, begun in 1230. Manuscript illumination flourished throughout the period with fine examples surviving such as the 15th century Tres Riches Heures de Duc de Berry and the Macclesfield Psalter, now housed in the Fitzwilliam Museum.
