4 History Originally the word Gothic was used by Italian Renaissance writers as a derogatory term for all art and architecture of the Middle Ages, which they regarded as comparable to the works of barbarian Goths. Florentine historiographer Giorgio Vasari ( ) was the first to label the architecture of preceding centuries "Gothic." Gothic stood for the towering elaborate churches in the style originating in France with the Romanesque. They stood for/represented the city of god, the Heavenly Jerusalem, on earth. The style originated in northern France around 1140, while the Romanesque was still flourishing. By the 13 th century it was spreading beyond Paris and like the Romanesque, it was related to Catholicism. In eastern and southern Europe, esp. Italy, the Byzantine style was prominent. In north Africa and the west Asia Islamic styles prevailed.
5 Gothic Historical context The medieval manors and monasteries were slowly being replaced by more and more free men living in towns and cities (feudalism was in decline) Large regional kingdoms were being created. The great intellectual centers (which now includes universities) were growing beyond the confines of the church. Professional guilds were being formed. The papacy was at its height of power and Christian Crusades against Muslims in the disputed Holy Land were still underway.

7 Abbot Suger, St. Denis & the Gothic Style Saint-Denis was the apostle who brought Christianity to Gaul. The abbey church of Saint-Denis is the location of not only his tomb (pilgrimage site!), but those of the Kings and Queens of France from the 9th century on. The original Church of Saint Denis was constructed ca under the rule of Charlemagne. In the 1130 s it was rebuilt under the supervision of Abbot Suger. In 1135 a new western, entrance facade was begun, and in 1140 the new east end was begun. Once the renovation was completed, Saint Denis was almost a completely new church. The reconstruction on the Abbey Church of Saint Denis influenced all other Gothic architectural structures and marked the beginning of the Gothic era.

13 The Chartres Cathedral Chartres Cathedral (Notre Dame de Chartres) is another important monument of the Early Gothic. There have been 5 cathedrals on this site before the current one. Became a pilgrimage church in the 9 th c when it acquired the tunic worn by the Virgin Mary when she gave birth to Christ. A fire destroyed all of the structure, except for the west façade, 50 years after its completion. The rebuilding (east) was completed in the High Gothic fashion, so the church contains both Early Gothic and its high point. West facade, Chartres Cathedral, Chartres, France, ca

26 French Stained Glass Windows In his description of the ideal church, Abbot Suger wanted to fill his Abbey Church of St. Denis, near Paris, with "the most radiant windows. With the help of the pointed arch and the flying buttress, cathedral walls were strengthened and spaces could be cut away for larger windows - and thereby meet the terms of Gothic's important instruction: more light.
27 Stained Glass Imagery The figures in these windows were stylized, simplified, and bold and were derived from Byzantine mosaics and medieval manuscripts. The subject matter was religious and derived mainly from the Bible. These great storied windows were the teaching tools of the Church. As the great cathedrals grew higher and higher in the 14 th century, the windows became taller and narrower, often divided into lancets (slender, pointed window)
28 In the large lancets we see Saint Anne flanked by prophets. Above in the Rose we see the Virgin and child at the center and New Testament figures. There are labels everywhere, though none could actually be seen from the floor of the cathedral.
