These papers are wide ranging studies of the forms, the expressive character, the content, and the social roots of Romanesque art.

Subjects include the sculptures of the cloister and the portal in the French abbey of Moissac, as well as the manuscript paintings and stone sculptures from the Castilian abbey of Silos. Schapiro applies evidence from numerous sources, such as literature, folklore, and political history, to reconstruct and interpret this rich artistic period.
