Set against the backdrop of a European wide slowdown in economic growth and the beginning of successive waves of plague culminating in the pandemic Black Death of the late 1340’s, plus the failure of Capetian dynastic line in France, the architectural and design baton was handed to Britain. Here with a much more stable political and economic situation, Gothic developed into what has become known as Decorated. This has been dived into Geometric and Curvilinear. In France elements of this would be assimilated into what would become known as Flamboyant Gothic. In the area of Germany this would become known as ‘Opus Francigenum’. In Spain, the various principalities and Kingdoms, whilst being heavily influenced by French Gothic, would develop regional styles, most notably, Catalan Gothic.
This course will include a trip to Exeter Cathedral.

It is rare to find a venue - and an audience - so thoroughly dedicated to the enjoyment culture and cultivation of the mind as Dillington House and its visitors. As someone who hasn't lived in Britain for the past two decades, Dillington was also a delightful reminder of the beauties of English landscape and rural architecture. It was a pleasure to speak there and I envy those who can visit frequently.
