    The book’s sixteen well-illustrated essays are of great use to specialists and provide non-specialists with a flavour of current work on cross-cultural exchange in the medieval Mediterranean. The teaching of Romanesque art and architecture is all but extinct in British universities and is often neglected by researchers. This wonderful series of books raises hopes for its resurrection.
