Description:
Though the contents were selected for variety rather than consistency, these essays and excerpts from major works do consistently represent the developing standpoint of a man who, more than any other, introduced the concept of iconography into the study or art. The topics he handles here, apart from the whole theory of iconography and iconology, include aspects of the work of Titian, Poussin and Durer, the life of Abbot Suger of St-Denis, the theory of human proportions, and the intriguing first page of Vasari's Libro.

Description:
It is sometimes thought that art, philosophy, and literature develop in hot-house environments, communicating little with each other, influencing but slightly each other's developments and discoveries. Though this view has often been challenged, the modern tradition, dependent in large measure upon attitudes that emerged in the romantic age, often imagines that genius and inspiration somehow overleap their cultural ancestry and surroundings. Erwin Panofsky, in this book, indicates with grace and humanistic breadth the profound correlation between the development of Gothic architecture and the growth of scholastic philosophy. He succeeds, as perhaps few others have, in showing how architectural style and structure provided visible and tangible equivalents to the scholastic definitions of the order and form of thought.

Description:
This second collection consists of most of the papers, essays and addresses I have written since its predecessor, The Truimph of Romanticism (1970). 'Romanticism' and 'behavior' may seem strangely associated, but they indicate my two principal interests. Many years ago I concluded that I could not comprehend Romanticism unless I had theories of language, art, cultural history, and epistemology on which I could rest some weight. My investigations into these problems led me to the conclusion that they could not be understood without a theory of behavior.

Description:
Volume 3: The dominant force in the culture of the Middle Ages was the church, without which it is impossible to comprehend medieval life and thought. The Growth of Medieval Theology (600 - 1300) is an account of how, beginning with the seventh century, the faith of the medieval church - what is believed, taught, and confessed - evolved from the heritage of the church fathers, developing into forms of doctrine that are still characteristic of Western Christianity.

Description:
Geometry underlies the structure of all things - from galaxies to molecules. Each time a geometrical form is created, an expression of this universal oneness is made, and from the dawn of time religious structures have expressed this unity in their every detail. Sacred geometry is responsible for the feelling of awe generated by a gothic cathedral as well as for the 'rightness' of a Georgian drawing-room. Sacred Geometry traces the rise and fall of this transcendent art from megalithic stone circles to Art Nouveau and reveals how buildings that conform to its timeless principles mirror the geometry of the cosmos.

Translation, introduction and notes by A.W. Pickard-Cambridge, M.A.Demosthenes, whose name is a byword with us, as it was to Cicero and Burke, for oratory and statesmanship, was the man who would have revived the fading glory of Athens if any man could. All his political life he strove to restore his native city to her place as the leader, but not as the dominator, of the Hellenic world. It was his glory that while he foresaw the almost inevitable eclipse of Athens with the other free communities of Greece, he never ceased for a moment to struggle against aggression from without and dissension within.

The Song of Songs was the inspiration of many theological commentators, especially during the twelfth century, when St. Bernard of Clairvaux in particular devoted an important series of sermons to it. The present text is a version which is in part a romance, in part an allegorical interpretation of the work which was written in the north of France for a lay public. It is preserved in only one manuscript, and has never before been edited in full.

Description:
The composition of The World of the Crusaders was guided by the desire to relate the story of the Crusades and to make the society created and sustained by them accessible to the wider reading public. The book was conceived as a balanced combination of narrative and pictorial commentary. Hence, almost without exception, the rich illustrative material is contemporary with the Crusades and their aftermath, which not only helps the reader visualise the material surroundings of the crusaders' existence, but often projects the crusaders' image of themselves.
