Age of Cathedrals: Art and Society 980-1420 (POD)
Author(s): Georges Duby
Although individuals create works of art, these works are also the product of a particular time and place. In ''The Age of the Cathedrals, '' French historian Georges Duby offers a sweeping survey of the changing mentalities of the Middle Ages as these changes are reflected in the art and architecture of the period. The result is a richly textured portrait of another age and a provocative essay on the relationship between art and society.
