Gothic

A time of cities, of guilds and merchants, and of cathedrals. The artistic expression known as the Gothic style evolved in the lower Middle Ages between the 12th and 15th centuries. The gradual disappearance of the feudal bonds, the resurgence of the cities, an ever more prosperous commercial sector and the progressive humanisation of the Christian doctrine served as a fertile breeding ground for this art form. The city became the main centre of activity and took on the role of cultural repository which had hitherto been solely reserved to the monasteries. In Spain this was the time of the great cathedrals which soared up towards the sky in search of divinity.
