The photographs in the book, together with the main chapters and the sections on forms and techniques, show how much more there is to the Romanesque apart from round arches and heavy, powerful walls. Some of the pictures will convey the special atmosphere which characterizes a medieval church or monastery, and enable the reader to gain an understanding of the very different quality of life enjoyed by the people who lived there.
