Romanesque Cathedrals
ITALIAN CATHEDRAL Until about 1100, the main style of church or cathedral architecture was called Romanesque for its Roman rounded archways. There where three doors by the entrance way which represented the Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Ghost. The Romanesque cathedrals had thick walls and broad base to allow for high heaven reaching roofs. As a result they appear to be rooted to the ground. [MH] {NR}
