Page 204 - ... century. They display all the rude magnificence of the Norman period, used in this instance not experimentally, as was too often the case in England, but as a well-understood style, whose features were fully perfected. So far from striving after novelty, the Scotch architects were looking backwards, and culling the beauties of a long-established style.
Page 490 - European structure, and in fact must be considered as almost purely a Tartar building. Still, though strangely altered by time, most of its forms can be traced back to the Byzantine style, as certainly as the details of the cathedral of Cologne to the romanesque. The central spire, for instance, is the form into which the Russians had, during five centuries, gradually changed the straight-lined domes of the Armenians.
Page 588 - Mediicval engineers. The true method of its attainment was never discovered in Europe until it was forced on the attention of military men by the discovery of gunpowder. Here it is used by a people who never had, so far as we know, an external war, but who, nevertheless, have designed the most perfectly planned fortress we know.
Page 46 - Germany in the year 1200, which, though it nearly ended fatally to one of them at least. shows how much importance was attached to the profession of literature at even that early period. Here the sainted Elizabeth of Hungary lived with her cruel brother-in-law ; here she practised those virtues and endured those misfortunes that render her name so dear and so familiar to all the races of Germany ; and it was in this castle that Luther found shelter after leaving the Diet at Worms, and where he resided...
Page 401 - Palermo is almost wholly wanting. It is evident that the architectural features in the buildings of which the cathedral of Monreale is the type, were subordinate, in the eyes of their builders, to the mosaic decorations which cover every part of the interior, and are in fact the glory and pride of the edifice, by which alone it is entitled to rank among the finest of Mediaeval churches. All the principal personages of the Bible are represented in the stiff but grand style of Greek art, sometimes...
Page 134 - of all the architects of Northern Europe, seems to have conceived the idea of getting rid of what was in fact the bathos of the style — the narrow tall opening of the central tower, which though possessing exaggerated height gave neither space nor dignity to the principal feature. Accordingly he took for his base the whole breadth of the Church, North and South, including the aisles, by that of the transepts with their aisles in the opposite direction.
Page 499 - Koran gives no directions on the subject, and so simple were the primitive habits of the nomad Arabs, that had the religion been confined to its native land, it is probable that no mosque worthy of the name would ever have been erected.
Page 25 - The arrangement with three apses possesses the architectural propriety of terminating nobly the interior to which it is applied. As the worshipper advances up the nave, the three apses open gradually upon him, and form a noble and appropriate climax without the effect being destroyed by something less magnificent beyond. But their most pleasing effect is external, where the three simple circular lines combine gracefully together, and form* an elegant basement for the central dome or tower. Compared...
Page 196 - English architecture, though but a negative one, is the almost total absence of any municipal buildings during the whole period of the Middle Ages.
Page 450 - Sophia — internally at least, for we may omit the consideration of the exterior, as unfinished — is the most perfect and most beautiful church which has yet been erected by any Christian people.
