Book Description:
Although medieval Campania was part of the Norman kingdom, which at its zenith included almost all of southern Italy, it has distinguishable characteristics that set it apart from its neighbours: the emphatic imprint of the Roman past, a long lived Lombard settlement, the authoritative conservatism of the Abbey of Monte Cassino, the lack of Byzantine dominance and close political and cultural ties with Sicily. In this sense, Romanesque sculpture in Campania is very much a local phenomenon, for it evolved from a close study of local antiquity and the selective adaptation of elements from neighbouring provinces. From its beginning, Romanesque sculpture in Campania is characterized by attention to small scale decorative motifs seen on both portals and capitals. By the latter part of the 12th century, an avid interest in stone pulpits and paschal candelabra fostered both internal consistency in local workshops and specifically Campanian content in part inspired by the local liturgy. Dorothy Glass' study of this sculpture urges that the definition of Romanesque be both expanded and extended chronologically to include the southern Mediterranean.
