O tempo das catedrais: a arte e a sociedade, 980-1420.

DUBY, Georges - O tempo das catedrais: a arte e a sociedade, 980-1420. - Lisboa: Estampa, 1979. - 314, [3] p.: il.; 21 cm. - (Imprensa universitária; 8)

Throughout the three parts of this book – the Monastery 980-1130, the Cathedral 1130-1280 and the Palace 1280-1420 – the author examines the social and cultural contexts that guided artistic creation in the West between the 10th and 15th centuries. The evolution of art and architecture is thus seen through the evolution of mentalities, of society, and of political and religious power during three periods: the first one marked by monastic culture and the weakening of royal power, the second by the development of cities and of large Gothic cathedrals, and finally, the period marked by the Renaissance and the assertion of secular culture.
