Guided Notes: Romanesque, Gothic, and Fourteenth Century Europe* The following notes and questions are a guide to help you prepare for the Romanesque, Gothic, and Fourteenth Century that is part of the final examination. The notes refer to Powerpoint slides posted on Gullnet under the headings Romanesque and Gothic and Fourteenth Century . Each line indicates a separate word. I’ve provided an example just below of how to approach your studying: ROMANESQUE SLIDE 1—The Romanesque Period is characterized by three broad cultural trends: __________; __________; and __________. The basic answer is pilgrimage, monasteries, and crusades. As you look at the slide, click once to reveal the identity of the slide to the far left. Then read in Stokstad about pilgrimages and their importance in the Romanesque world (both in the general text and in the Art and Its Context textbox labeled “The Pilgrim’s Journey”). Click again to reveal the title and basic identifying information of the plan. Read about the monastery of Cluny in Stokstad. Finally, your last click reveals the title, date, period, etc. of the fortress you see at the bottom. Here is some information about this image which is not in your book: The Knights Hospitaller (or Knights of the Order of St. John) took over this castle in the twelfth century. The walls and towers were rebuilt in the 13 th , perhaps in response to earthquake damage. Because the fort possessed nine water cisterns, it could withstand sieges; its size allowed for accommodation of a large garrison of knights, monks, servants and staff. There are chapels and a cloister, as well, because the structure was owned by a monastic order. The building fell to the Muslims in 1271 when tunnels breached its defenses and attackers burned its crops. How does this latter work fit into what you’ve learned about the crusades in general from Stokstad? SLIDE 2—The Romanesque style applies specifically to art of the __________ and __________ centuries and is used to describe, as this church demonstrates, architecture that consists of solid __________ walls with __________ arches that were characteristic of earlier Roman buildings. There are also many small, clear __________ that allow light to come into the church. Finally, the nave is composed of barrel vaults and the side aisles
