Product Description

Cistercian Europe offers a lavishly illustrated journey through Europe's magnificent Cistercian abbeys. A leading expert in medieval architecture, Terryl Kinder brings these famous monasteries to life, showing not only where monks lived, worked, and prayed but also how the exquisite architecture of these buildings reflects the spiritual transformation to which their residents aspired. Dozens of famous Cistercian monasteries from across Europe have been chosen to illustrate the wide variety of forms and functions. With informed and enagaging text Kinder places these monasteries squarely within the context of daily monasteric life in the Middle Ages, describing the use for each abbey building, the reasons underlying the desire forsimplicity, and the nature of the contemplative life they were designed to model. Maps, floor plans, and more than two hundred full-color and black-and-white photographs support the text.
