1/28/16 St. Matthew, Ebbo Gospels, 816-835 • lots of lines, the image seems to vibrate • sense of movement gives the sense that something divine is happening • has a golden border that also seems to move • he has a concerned expression—looks like he is doing an all nighter • his hair is curly—like you can see the thoughts spewing out • subject to time because of the movement • there is a sense of storytelling Ottonian to Romanesque The Hildesheim Doors, Saint Michael’s, Hildesheim, Germany, 1015 • each door was cast as a single piece of bronze—very large sheet of bronze which leads to a greater source of error • left side of the doors recounts the book of Genesis and the right side recounts the life of Christ • the old testament scene and the new testament scenes match up next to each other (see the image on the lecture slides of the layout) • Presentation of Eve toAdam • God is shown presenting Eve toAdam • their gaze meets and they are reaching out to each other • God is much larger and in much higher relief thanAdam and Eve • the figures stand on the ground line like a tight rope—their feet go over it, the figures lean out a little bit • the leaning out helps people be able to see them from down below • Fall ofAdam and Eve • Adam and Eve were cough eating the fruit • they are covering their nakedness • the serpent is shown on the ground • they are shown blaming each other and the chain of blame leads to the serpent • God is shown pointing atAdam who is pointing at Eve who is pointing at the serpent • Expulsion from the Garden of Eden • the ground line is firm and solid • Adam and Eve are shown eating the gate • the natural world around them reflects what is happening in the scene • The Temptation • the trees are twisted and the world is beginning to rupture • they are already being separated • The Crucifixion • Christ is on the cross • Saint Mary and St. John are both present • two men are staying him • the figures witnessing the scene are off balance—they lean backwards and forwards • St. John clutches the gospel book—this identifies him • the figures are all separate from each other • the earthquake is shown by the uneven ground • Cross that Christ dies on is called the tree of life Otto I presenting Magdeburg Cathedral to Christ, from an altar or pulpit in Magdeburg Cathedral, 962-968 • was gone over in discussion so she isn't going to cover it Saint-Étienne, Vignory, France, 1050-1057 • looking down the nave to the apse is facing east architecturally clear and coherent • • looks like Roman (Romanesque) • there are radiating chapels—on the end of the apse to hold more altars • ambulatory allows people to go around the places that are reserved for priests • 3 story elevation—similar to Palatine Chapel • Romans did not like columns that were resting on an arch like the columns on this building Saint-Sernin, Toulouse, France, 1070-1120 • pilgrimage church—they have a lot of people visiting • cross shaped building • the narthex is very clear to see • its on the coast so its nice to visit • extra long nave so getting to the end is more exciting • there are double isles • lots of radiating chapels • bay: unit of measure in a church, like a slice of cake hormonally across the church • this church is 11 bays with a width of 4 bays • columns stuck on the wall are engaged columns • there are transverse arches and a barrel vault • the isles have groin vaults Christ in Majesty, Bernardus Gelduninus, relief in the ambulatory of Saint-Sernin, Toulouse, 1096 • inscription on the altar that dates it and states the artist: Bernardus Gelduninus • Christ is in a mandorla (named after an almond) halo • raises his right hand and holds a book in his left that is inscribed “peace to you” • Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are in the four corners • statue remains flat and planar but there are many different forms and plains Madonna and Child (Morgan Madonna), 2nd half of the 12th century • free-standing small devotional sculpture • one of the most reproduced images in Christianity • it is very emotionally satisfying • Madonna as the throne of wisdom • human figure in the shape of a throne • the Catholic church provides the foundation for Christ—church is unmoving • she is supportive and encloses Christ in her arms • even the mantel conforms to the form of her body • Christ’s arm was probably raised giving a blessing Abbey Church of Sainte-Foy, Conques, France, 11th century • looks like a fairytale church long nave that is crossed by a transept • • has radiating chapels Reliquary Statue Sainte-Foy, late 10th to early 11th century with later additions • young child who refused to pray to Roman pagan gods • furta sacre: holy theft • the people that stole it claimed that Sainte Foy wanted to be there • reliquaries provided destinations for pilgrimages • made of gold, silver, gilt, and jewels over a wooden core • has a Roman helmet • things kept being added to it through the 19th century • Sainte-Foy was a greedy saint—she demanded that people gave her all of their jewels Cisterians and Cluniacs ThirdAbbey church (Cluny III), 1088-1130 • The abbey was only under the supervision of the Pope because the man that donated the land relinquished his rights to profit • they began decorating more with art South Portal of Saint-Pierre, Moissac, France, 1115-1135 • depicts the second coming of Christ • he is surrounded by the 4 evangelios • there are 24 crowned historical kings • Christ is the largest—hierarchical size • the registers are rippled • this is a last judgement scene-clear religious message • see the Romanesque portal diagram from the lecture slides Cloister at Saint-Pierre, Moissac, France, 1100-1115 • the trumeau has intertwined birds and all the columns have nonreligious subjects—each capital is different
