In this 2003 study, Edson Armi offers a fresh interpretation of Romanesque architecture. He integrates the study of medieval structure with an understanding of construction, decoration and articulation in an effort to determine the origins and originality of medieval architecture and the formation of the High Romanesque style, especially in Burgundy, at sites such as Cluny III.

Romanesque architecture is an architectural style of medieval Europe characterized by semi-circular arches. There is no consensus for the beginning date of the Romanesque style, with proposals ranging from the 6th to the 11th century, this later date being the most commonly held. In the 12th century it developed into the Gothic style, marked by pointed arches.

A very wordy discussion of very few ideas. Cluttered with jargon. Hard to follow on tablet because illustrations not coordinated with text. Badly needs diagrams.

I have not only used the book, but experienced Dr. Armi in his element at the University of California Santa Barbara. His enthusiasm, knowledge, and insight to the history, design, and construction of Romanesque buildings is truly special. This book reveals the significance and depth of the First Romanesque period in a comprehensive physical, religious, and cultural context.
