The Gothic Cathedral

The Gothic

The Gothic cathedrals of the Middle Ages are among the world's supreme architectural achievements. Hundreds of these great churches were built throughout Europe in a rich variety of styles between c. 1130 and c. 1530, all of them representing an investment of money and effort so immense that it is difficult to find a modern parallel. Christopher Wilson focuses here on the interaction between design and the requirements of patrons, following the creative processes of architects by reconstructing the problems and opportunities that they faced. He discusses chronology, structural techniques, and stylistic developments and then goes further, seeing the story as a sequence of choices from which new challenges and solutions arose. 221 illustrations.

The Construction of Gothic Cathedrals: A Study of

John Fitchen systematically treats the process of erecting the great edifices of the Gothic era. He explains the building equipment and falsework needed, the actual operations undertaken, and the sequence of these operations as specifically as they can be deduced today. Since there are no contemporary accounts of the techniques used by medieval builders, Fitchen's study brilliantly pieces together clues from manuscript illuminations, from pictorial representations, and from the fabrics of the building themselves. "Anyone who has caught the fascination of Gothic Churches (and once caught, has almost necessarily got it in the blood) will find this book enthralling. . . . Clearly written and beautifully illustrated." —A. D. R. Caroe, Annual Review, Central Council for the Care of Churches "Fitchen's study is a tribute to the extraordinary creative and engineering skills of successive generations of mediaeval builders. . . . This study enables us to appreciate more fully the technical expertise and improvements which enabled the creative spirit of the day to find such splendid embodiment." —James Lingwood, Oxford Art Journal"Fitchen, in what can only be defined as an architectural detective story, fully explores the problems confronting the medieval vault erectors and uncovers th...

Crosley CR32CD Cathedral Retro AM/FM Radio and CD Player with Full-Range Stereo Speakers, Paprika

Crosley CR32CD Cathedral Retro AM/FM Radio and CD

The Cathedral radio, introduced in 1932, is one of the most widely recognized designs of all antique radios. It has quite simply been dubbed the "Cathedral" or is sometimes referred to as the "Gothic." The Crosley CR32CD is a remarkably rich replica, outfitted with an arched veneered top and the applied solid wood moldings are hand-rubbed to perfection using Crosley's same unflinching standards. Its smooth round edges, woven grill cloths, detailed framework and antiqued bronze face plate lend a true air of authenticity to this time honored Crosley. The Cathedral CR32CD features a programmable CD player with LED display. It is so much like the original, but with all the bells and whistles of present-day technology
