Medieval Art Gargoyles Cathedrals Knights

Medieval Knights Gargoyles Cathedrals


Medieval Art encompasses the Middle Ages period — roughly 1100 to 1400 AD. It is a period of European history which has many facets of development in building cathedrals, crusades, serfs and royal landowners, wars about Christianity and territorial gain.

KNIGHT IN ARMOR – During medieval times, the knight profession gained immense strength and endurance. Knights were well-protected by their armor, but protection came with a price. Armor alone could weigh half as much again as the knight. During the Crusades, European armor became an oven. Many knights died from heat stroke and dehydration. Weapons were unwieldy and could inflict great damage. The knights were hired by the pope during the crusades to fight against those enemies of Christendom.  Each country had stylized knight suits of armor to reflect their distinctive heritage.

GARGOYLES – In architecture, a gargoyle is a carved stone grotesque with a spout designed to convey water from a roof and away from the side of a building. But to art lovers, a gargoyle is a mythical winged dog beast who snarls from roof tops to scare away evil. Gargoyles have many personalities. Some are menacing, some are pensive, and some are goofy. Gargoyles were frequently carved to appear on the outside of Gothic churches during the middle ages. Today these trusty beasts are added as decor to gardens for safeguarding doorways and windowsills.
