This fully illustrated work tells the remarkable story of the Cistercian Order through its art: illuminated manuscripts, paintings, stained glass, carvings and sculpture, gathered from throughout Europe, Britain, and Scandinavia. It reveals how the Cistercians shaped the religious, cultural and economic unity of medieval Europe and shows the continuity of cistercian practice across the centuries.
