This collection of essays, written in honour of the eminent architectural historian Paul Crossley, brings together some of the most distinguished scholars of medieval art and architecture from the United States and many parts of Europe. Covering a broad spectrum of topics and approaches including recent discoveries, new interpretations and critical debates, this book and its counterpart Image, Memory and Devotion (also published in the Studies in Gothic Art series) offer a fitting tribute to the exceptional range of Professor Crossley's intellectual interests, while providing invaluable insights into the present study of the Middle Ages.

Review
"The two-volume liber amicorum is a stunning testament to Paul as a scholar and teacher. (...) In a brief review it is impossible to do justice to the contents of these volumes. The editors deserve credit for the herculean effort of producing two volumes that are far more than the sum of their parts and that largely avoid the patchy coverage and quality of many festschriften." (Matthew Reeve, in: Speculum, 89/3, July 2014, p. 812-814)
