Professor Fernie's research has done much to clarify the development of architecture in England and France from the Anglo-Saxon and Carolingian periods, through the Romanesque to the development of Gothic. Of particular interest has been his studies of architectural proportions and systems of length during this period. This volume make available thirty studies published over the last twenty years on buildings as varied as the pre-Conquest Abbey at Westminster and the church of St Magnus at Egilsay. There are two studies on sculpture, and a number of studies on the St. Gall plan and architectural proportions in English churches. The author has contributed additional notes and an index.
