Architecture of solitude : Cistercian abbeys in twelfth-century England by Peter Fergusson( Book )
14 editions published between 1984 and 2005 in English and held by 653 libraries worldwide
"From their arrival in England in 1128 to the end of the twelfth century, the Cistercians established fifty monasteries, including some of the largest and most famous abbeys in the country. The author traces the evolution of Cistercian architecture in England during the this period and explains it as a manifestation both of the order's spiritual aims and of the manifestation of Gothic architecture in France. He shows how the founding houses in France influenced Cistercian architecture in England and how the order's spiritual commitments to poverty and solitude isolated its building from English architectural tradition."--Publisher description
Rievaulx Abbey : community, architecture, memory by Peter Fergusson( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in English and held by 438 libraries worldwide
"Located in a beautiful tree-sided valley in the North York moors, Rievaulx Abbey stands as one of the pre-eminent medieval ruins in Europe. From 1132, for over 400 years, the monastery served Cistercian monks, and in its early decades was home to a community of 650 men. For the next 400 years, following Henry VIII's Suppression, the deserted buildings have continued to haunt the valley in an unforeseen after-life, stimulating memory of the monks and their spiritual endeavours, notably during the Picturesque and Romantic periods." "This is the first book to study the architecture of Rievaulx viewing the buildings' 800-year history and the varying periods of construction and deconstruction as much in terms of continuity as disruption. In its elucidation of the architecture, extensive reconstruction drawings, and its examination of context, iconography and social and economic factors, this book offers a fuller and more scholarly account of the buildings of a great medieval institution than any currently available."--Jacket
Perspectives for an architecture of solitude : essays on Cistercians, art and architecture in honour of Peter Fergusson by Peter Fergusson( Book )
8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
Canterbury Cathedral Priory in the age of Becket by Peter Fergusson( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 194 libraries worldwide
"This fascinating book recounts the extensive building program that took place at Canterbury Cathedral Priory, England, from 1153 to 1167, during the time when Thomas Becket served as Royal Chancellor and then as archbishop of Canterbury. Masterminded by Prior Wibert, the renewal included the physical expansion of the cathedral's precinct, the construction of new buildings, and the installation of a pioneering pressurized water system. This ambitious undertaking utilized a Late Romanesque style, lavish materials, and sculpture, and drew on the optimism and creative energy of the young Angevin rulers of England, Henry II and his queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine. Canterbury Cathedral Priory in the Age of Becket reassesses the surviving remains and relates them to important changes in Benedictine monasticism concerned with hospitality, hygiene, the administration of law, liturgy, and the care of the sick. It also restores to history a neglected major patron of unusual breadth and accomplishments. Peter Fergusson sheds fresh light on the social and cultural history of the mid-12th century."--Publisher's description
