The centuries have not been kind to the Gothic Moment that began in France in 1144 A.D. Revolutions, wars, weather and well-intentioned restorations have worked to obscure the edgy, lively cultural and philosphical era that was Gothic Humanism in imagery and architecture. Colors have faded and forms have been altered so that what one now often confronts, in the name of the Gothic, is a pale shadow of what was.
Join Arthur Tobias in an illustrated lecture about the architectural roots of the Gothic and follwo along as he searaches for le temps perdu at five catherdral sited in France.
