Description

The study of European ecclesiastical architecture from the end of Antiquity to the twelfth century reveals how important Roman culture remained long after the fall of the city of Rome. At the same time, the liturgical ceremonies taking place in churches underwent dramatic transformations leading to elaborate processions requiring an expansion and modification of the living space. In addition, there is now increasing evidence that individual churches were planted in special locations, with the purpose of inscribing Christian messages onto the surrounding landscape.
