AHDS Visual Arts: Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain and Ireland

Romanesque stone sculpture pervades buildings throughout Britain and Ireland. Carvings of human figures, animals, monsters, grotesques, religious motifs, geometric patterns, foliage and other adornment from the 11th and 12th centuries can be found in parish churches and cathedrals, houses and halls, and castles and museums, throughout the British Isles.
Now a further 3000 images from the Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain and Ireland (CRSBI) are now available online via AHDS Visual Arts. This latest addition brings the total number of digital images available from the CRSBI to over 14,000 images. This latest addition from the CRSBI includes records of Romanesque sculpture in Herefordshire, Oxfordshire, Norfolk, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Somerset, Suffolk, East and West Riding of Yorkshire, and Tipperary and Roscommon in the Republic of Ireland.
