    Romanesque is an umbrella term for a style of architecture that developed between Carolingian, that is the end of Charlemagne’s (Karl der Grosse for the German side of the family) unified European empire (c. 843) and the beginning of a related, but more complex (in both construction and aesthetics) style known as Gothic (initiated by Abbot Suger’s construction of the east end of St. Denis in Paris: 1140). One of its major features that distinguished it from the earlier Carolingian buildings is the use of stone, rather than timber, to span a building’s central spaces. This was a response to first the Viking raids from the north, that began in 793 with the burning of Lindisfarne Abbey in northeastern England, and then to the later incursions by the Hungarian Magyars from the east that lasted between 881 and 955. In both cases, the timber roofs of buildings offered little protection against the torching of such buildings by the invaders.

    With the peaceful passing of the millennium (1000) when it was assumed by Christian believers that Jesus would return initiating the Last Judgment, that stretched past 1033, the date of a 1000 years after Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection, jubilation spread throughout the continent and a renewal of church building began. The monk Rodulfus Glaber recorded in 1050: “A white mantle of churches arose throughout France a little after the year 1000; it came about that the churches were rebuilt throughout the known world.” I will present three different variations of Romanesque churches in the upcoming posts. This first one is Saint-Lazare (image 2) in Autun (central France) and is a good example of a Cluniac abbey. It’s interior is believed to be a miniature version of Cluny and is cited by historians as such. This especially holds true of its tympanum sculpture (image 4) and its four-part nave elevation (image 5-6). It is its collection of didactic relief biblical sculptures done by Gislebertus (who was trained at Cluny) for
