Summary: Friars transformed the relationship of the church to laymen by taking religion outside to public and domestic spaces. Mendicant commitment to apostolic poverty bound friars to donors in an exchange of donations in return for intercessory prayers and burial: association with friars was believed to reduce the suffering of purgatory. Mendicant convents became urban cemeteries, warehouses filled with family tombs, flags, shields, and private altars. This book analyses the friars' influence on the growth and transformation of medieval buildings and urban spaces. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_0300203845
Über diesen Titel:
As mendicants became progressively institutionalized and sought legitimacy, friars adopted the architectural structures of monasticism: chapter houses, cloisters, dormitories, and refectories. They also created piazzas for preaching and burying outside their churches. Construction depended on assembling adequate funding from communes, confraternities, and private individuals; it was also sometimes supported by the expropriation of property from heretics. Because of irregular funding, construction was episodic, with substantial changes in scale and design. Choir screens served as temporary west façades while funds were raised for completion. This is the first book to analyze the friars? influence on the growth and transformation of medieval buildings and urban spaces.
This fascinating book considers how the mission of mendicant friars to go out into society helped reconfigure urban space and had a profound influence on city architecture in medieval times.
