Cistercian Europe offers a lavishly illustrated journey through Europe's magnificent Cistercian abbeys. A leading expert in medieval architecture, Terryl Kinder brings these famous monasteries to life, showing not only where monks lived, worked, and prayed but also how the exquisite architecture of these buildings reflects the spiritual transformation to which their residents aspired. Dozens of famous Cistercian monasteries from across Europe have been chosen to illustrate the wide variety of architectural forms.
First of all, Kinder's book is handsome, filled with exquisite photographs from across the continent of Europe (many of them her own) as well as clear, useful floor plans. Its attractiveness extends to the gracefully written and reader-friendly text, the authoritative statement of decades of study by the author, studded with thoughtful personal insights.
