Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'a magnificent study ... interdisciplinary historical scholarship at its best, with brilliant and imaginative insights'

- Professor Brian McGuire

Published to coincide with the 900th anniversary of the foundation of the Cistercian Order, this is the first ever history of the Cistercians depicted through contemporary artwork, and presents a visually stunning survey of one of the major forces of medieval Europe.

Synopsis:

This fully illustrated work tells the remarkable story of the Cistercian Order through its art: illuminated manuscripts, paintings, stained glass, carvings and sculpture, gathered from throughout Europe, Britain, and Scandinavia. It reveals how the Cistercians shaped the religious, cultural and economic unity of medieval Europe and shows the continuity of cistercian practice across the centuries.
