The most comprehensive study of this subject to date, A History of Russian Architecture surveys Russian building from the masonry churches of tenth-century Kievan Rus to the pre-fabricated built environments of the present. Subject to cultural and stylistic influences from both East and West, Russian architecture nonetheless developed its own distinctive approaches to building, as demonstrated in the four parts of the study: early medieval Rus up to the Mongol invasion in the mid-twelfth century; the revival of architecture in Novgorod and Muscovy from the fourteenth to seventeenth centuries; the cultural revolution in architecture in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries; and the advent of modern architecture. Analysing stylistic developments within their historical contexts, this volume serves as a rich cultural history that will be invaluable to scholars and general readers alike.Read more
