Gothic Song: Victorine Sequences and Augustinian Reform in Twelfth-Century Paris

Przednia okładka
Because the liturgy stood at the very heart of medieval religious experience, the study of liturgical change is basic to an understanding of the Middle Ages, its religious life, and its art. In this far-reaching study, Margot Fassler explores currents of liturgical change in twelfth-century France and the extent to which Augustinian canons regularly contributed to them. Concentrating upon the late sequences from the Abbey of St. Victor in Paris, she proposes that the sequences provide crucial evidence both for explaining new attitudes toward the liturgy during the twelfth century and for defining those principles in the arts commonly called 'Gothic'.
