The Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture online

The CRSBI is an evolving electronic archive of British and Irish Romanesque stone sculpture. Romanesque sculpture marks a high point of artistic production in Britain and Ireland, corresponding to the boom in high-quality building that followed the Norman Conquest in 1066, and reflecting a new set of links with mainland Europe. A good deal of this sculpture remains in parish churches and cathedrals, houses and halls, castles and museums throughout these isles.
