The architecture of the Scottish medieval church, 1100-1560 by Richard Fawcett( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first in-depth survey of Scotland's medieval church architecture covers buildings constructed between the early 12th century and the Reformation in 1560. From majestic cathedrals and abbeys to modest parish churches and chapels, Richard Fawcett places the architecture in context by considering the varied sources of ideas that underlay church designs. Over the centuries, Scottish patrons and their masons moved away from a close relationship with England to create a unique late medieval architectural synthesis that took ideas from a wide range of sources. The book concludes with an account of the impact of the Reformation on church construction and design."--Publisher's description
Scottish architecture : from the accession of the Stewarts to the Reformation, 1371-1560 by Richard Fawcett( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the ambitious cathedral and abbey churches to the smaller chapels, and from the great royal palaces to the lesser towerhouses, this volume in The Architectural History of Scotland series is a study of the full range of buildings raised between the late-fourteenth and mid-sixteenth centuries. Placing Scottish architecture within its wider European context, it begins by surveying and analysing the sources of the ideas which underlay the emergence of the country's distinctive late Gothic style, before looking in detail at the individual building types. Copiously illustrated with photographs, engraving and comparative plans of building types, this is the only comprehensive reference guide to the period's architectural history, and is essential reading for both the general and scholarly reader

Ayrshire and Arran is an area of striking contrasts. Its landscape ranges from sand dunes to rolling pastures to moors. The local architecture is similarly diverse, marrying natural beauty with industry and modernity. This survey, featuring specially commissioned photographs and maps, offers the kind of detailed and comprehensive analysis for which the Pevsner Architectural Guides are known. Highlights include the monument at the Skelmorlie Aisle and Robert Burns's birthplace in Alloway; the stones of Machrie Moor; medieval castles and planned towns; early churches and abbeys; and some of the best-known country houses, Culzean Castle and Dumfries House
