Architektur, Glasmalerei und Ikonographie der Kathedrale Saint-Étienne in Auxerre
It took generations for the Cathedral of Auxerre to be completed and yet the building shows a remarkable homogeneity. Along with the architecture, particularly the numerous cycles of images deserve recognition. These "talking Pictures" are not merely decorative elements but integral components of the bishop`s church. It is the interaction between many singular pieces of art by which the Cathedral Saint-Étienne conveys a realistic impression of the complexity of medieval sacral buildings and the religiousness of an urban society in the 13th century.
Marius Lausch, working in teaching profession, main research aims are: construction and iconography of mediaeval architecture and architectural history in general.
