Example text

The uneven and changing character of the groin vault, then, was determined less by the geometry of hypothetically converging barrel vaults than by the mundane considerations of building. Masons looked for ways, in keeping 48 Design and Construction in Romanesque Architecture with a continuous vertical aesthetic, to improve the structure of the vault, even the crown line, and reduce materiel and labor. To satisfy these requirements, in one vault they combined two different structures, a corbeled base and pointed webs, to achieve minimal thrust and a narrow true-vault span.

On the sides of these vaults, the pointed webs do not extend directly into continuous, square-edged, vertical reveals. The contrast is even more striking between the structure and aesthetic of southern First Romanesque architecture and contemporary architecture in northern France. In northern French churches, masons almost never pointed webs or used this structural device as part of a continuous vertical articulation. It is not as if northern European masons did not face the same problem of uneven groin crown lines as their southern counterparts.

10, 11), vertical connections are emphasized. In these churches, the underside of a barrel vault continues as a smooth surface into the wall of the nave. Southern masons also preferred to connect square-edged forms on the elevation. Without interruption, dosserets vertically continue the square edges of the transverse arches into the square-edged reveals of the compound piers. In the smallest and largest churches in northern France, and even in Ottonian Germany, masons almost never vaulted the central vessel.
