Every form, every detail of a medieval work of art represents or implies some thought or idea which was at once recognised and understood by the artists’ contemporaries. It is this lost language of the eye thatEmile Mâle has recovered for modern man. “This great book”, wrote Jacques Maritain, “is basic for the understanding of medieval art and medieval symbolism and of the vision of the world which presided over the building of the French cathedrals.

It is an indispensable guide for the student of Western Culture.To Bernhard Berenson it was “the most illuminating, the most informing, and the most penetrating book on the subject.” ”
