Should it be reassuring that I used, years ago, the same book that Proust carried with him when he set himself to follow Ruskin's trail on Gothic architecture?

My Professor on the subject was also a Ruskinian and often began his lectures quoting his writings.

I have to rescue this book from storage and read it again. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0064300323, Paperback)

Emile Male's book aids understanding of medieval art and medieval symbolism, and of the vision of the world which presided over the building of the French cathedrals. It looks at French religious art in the Middle Ages, its forms, and especially the Eastern sources of sculptural iconography used in the cathedrals of France. Fully illustrated with many footnotes it acts as a useful guide for the student of Western culture.
