About the Authors
  • France is a country so rich in architecture that it is not surprising that some of its fine buildings receive little attention. Amongst the Romanesque and Gothic churches and the Renaissance châteaux, the domestic architecture of the monasteries has been overlooked. Originally published in 1964, this book was the first study of French domestic monastic architecture since the Renaissance. The architecture corresponds to the collegiate and academic architecture of England, but its style is more splendid. To gain material for this book Dr Evans travelled all over France, and found that many of the buildings were now farms or country houses. The book includes 822 photographs, and the study is divided according to the various orders. This is a book which will appeal to art-lovers as well as architects and historians of the religious orders.
