CHRISTIAN ART OF ROMANESQUE PERIOD

Romanesque means “Roman like”

Interest in monumental architecture

Massive stone arches and masonry walls support more weight than previously to yield larger, interior space

Result:  

More massive pressure on side walls

Lack of windows so more wall space

      exists to hold up structure

Light sacrificed so images transferred to outside

      in stone relief.

Typically uses round arches
