The Art, History and Architecture of Florentine Churches

Full Product Description

Churches and palaces in Florence have been the subject matter of book-length, often multi-volume studies over the centuries. This book is a compendium of the main churches in Florence and has been written with two distinct audiences in mind: English-speaking students of Renaissance art, architecture, literature and history and the well-read traveller to Florence who wishes to place the works of art and architecture into the wider context of Italian culture. The choice of churches discussed here was influenced by the author's experience as teacher for several university programmes on site in Florence. The buildings described and analysed are those which students will most likely encounter in the course of their study-abroad stay in Florence, whether they wish to specialise in art, architecture or the history of the Florentine Renaissance. This book represents a textbook that offers concise information on the history, art, and architecture of 25 of the main Florentine churches, provides plans and photos of the facades, and introduces the student to some of the most important vocabulary and the main textual sources of the thirteenth to the seventeenth centuries.

The Art, History and Architecture of Florentine Churches by Andrea M. Galdy was published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in October 2016. The ISBN for The Art, History and Architecture of Florentine Churches is 9781443897549.
