The Asturian pre-Romanesque, Visigoth and Mozarabic periods

During the centuries of the high Middle Ages in Spain –from the 5th to the 10th century Common Era– three native artistic styles came into being in the phase prior to the consolidation of the golden age of Romanesque art. The oldest, the Visigoth style, developed during the kingdom of the same name, whose capital was in Toledo. Remains of this artistic style include simple rural churches and ornate carved gold pieces. The Asturian style, the best-known, evolved in the kingdom of Asturias, which became a bastion of resistance against the Muslim expansion. The combination of the Visigoth tradition with various new influences gave rise to churches, palaces and works of gold which were of outstanding quality for the Europe of the time. The third, the Mozarabic comprises traditions imported from the Muslim kingdom of al-Andalus and brought from the south of Spain by the Mozarabs (Iberian Christians) when they emigrated towards the Hispanic kingdoms of the north throughout the 10th century.
