Book Description:

"The Lithic Garden is an important addition to recent scholarship that sees Gothic churches as dynamic entities, activated by physical movement and energized by ritual and mnemonic practices-and to larger scholarly currents that explore the relation of medieval art, observation, and the natural world. By positing that the foliate friezes of canonical Gothic buildings such as Cluny III and Amiens Cathedral had their conceptual origins in the Dome of the Rock and other great Islamic monuments- newly known to Western Christians in the course of the Crusades- Doquang opens up a new field of exploration for Gothic specialists who wish to be part of art history's global turn."
