    One thought on “The Cathedral Builders”

    1. I can't with this book. First he talks about the United States of America for pages upon pages, then he just says things that are wrong (there's no difference between Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals my ass), and the book itself is badly put together. They don't differentiate quotes from the rest of the paragraphs, no quotation marks, no italics, no indentation. What an unpleasant read.

    2. Great book! Wonderful use of primary sources, sparse as they are, to explain the expertise, faith and technological innovation needed to build the great cathedrals. Didn't hurt that I had just seen some of them. Recommend to anyone interested in the social history of the 11th to13th centuries.

    3. This book was an inspiration for Ken Follett's novel, Pillars of the Earth. I find this little book a lot more interesting than the other architectural treatises on cathedrals I have read in the past.

    4. Un des meilleurs ouvrages sur la construction des cathédrales, le milieu de leur élaboration, les conditions économiques, etc
