READING November 6: Ecclesiology vs. Eschatology in Romanesque Sculptures Romanesque Art by Schapiro * Avarice and Unchastity-- during Romanesque period these vices became the main subjects of painted and sculptured moral homilies * love became main theme of vernacular poetry, esp in souther France where the higher feudal nobility, omreo stable than in the north and dneriched by its military conquests, by the expansion of agriculture and the reestablishment of commerce and town-life promoted an aristocratic, libertine culture * “the accumulation of money wealth through an expanding production and trade cut at the roots of feudalism and indirectly of Catoholic Christianity” * Romanesque church art became increasingly realistic, but also more grotesque. “As men came to know themselves and their own world more and more intimately, the images of Hell had to be as detailed and specific, as convincing in their concreteness, as the everyday scene.” * “the conception of the miser with the moneybag tied to his neck and the unchaste woman tormented by serpents is common to Romanesque and Moslem fantasy * Romanesque capital of the later 11 th and 12 th centuries in Toulouse there is a figure of an Avarice, with moneybags and 4 serpents * Semitic demonology (bottom pg 38)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
