Examining the profound artistic and cultural transitions in northern Italy during the late 11th and early 12th centuries, particularly as represented in the work of renowned sculptor Wiligelmo (active ca. 1100), this massive catalogue features reproductions and lengthy discussions of more than 200 objects (including sculptures, illuminated manuscripts, architectural fragments, and carvings in ivory and wood) that reflect the emergence of the Romanesque style. Illustrated with hundreds of photographs of churches, mosaics, frescoes and sculptures, four scholarly texts explore the cultural, religious and political character of the region during the period; extensively analyze the architecture and decoration of the Modena cathedral, the abbey of Nonantola and other important structures; and describe the production of manuscripts, murals and frescoes under the patronage of Matilda of Canossa (1046-1115).
