Full Description

4to. xxiv+414+(2)pp, 190 text ills, mainly photo. Publisher’s cloth.

The first English-language version of this influential book by Mâle, first published in France in 1898 but improved in subsequent editions. It has the particular merit that Mâle relates thirteenth century religious art to the religious literature of the time, and provides a more coherent overall interpretation of the surviving material than any previous writer.
