Reconstructing the Cathedral and Baptistery of Florence in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages

Reconstructing the Cathedral and Baptistery of Florence in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages

by Franklin Toker

The cathedral or Duomo of S. Maria del Fiore in Florence ranks as one of the most influential buildings of western architecture. The Florence Duomo Project is a study of everything that preceded, and still lies beneath, S. Maria del Fiore and its Baptistery. In four volumes, the author interweaves church liturgy, field archaeology, art history, and social and political history to give the Florence Duomo (and, in some cases, early medieval Florence itself) the context that until now it lacked. This volume links the construction phases of the S. Reparata and the Baptistery with the evolution of Early Christian and medieval architecture.
