The Role of Canterbury in the Development of English Architecture and Sculpture: c. 1150-1175

To research in England and France in an attempt to localize the origins of the Canterbury sculptural workshop. The transmission of artistic ideas and forms by workshops of itinerant craftsman was a dominant feature of the Middle Ages. At Canterbury there is the marriage of an architectural workshop from one region and a sculptural workshop from another. PI will study: (1) the nationality of the two workshops; (2) the participation of these two workshops in other English projects outside Canterbury; and (3) the importance of the Canterbury material for a reevaluation of the indigenous elements of later English Gothic architecture.
