Romanesque Art

"Throughout the 11th and 12th centuries there was a growing spirit of religious fervour in Europe. Groups of pilgrims embarked upon journeys to holy sites and the Crusades were organized to set the Holy Land free from the Muslims. At the same time, more and more devotees renounced the mundane world to retire into religious communities called monasteries. Soon monks gained great influence on all aspects of contemporary society.

The Union List of Artist Names

"The ULAN is a structured vocabulary currently containing around 293,000 names and other information about artists. Names in ULAN may include given names, pseudonyms, variant spellings, names in multiple languages, and names that have changed over time (e.g., married names). Among these names, one is flagged as the preferred name. Although it is displayed as a list, ULAN is structured as a thesaurus, compliant with ISO and NISO standards for thesaurus construction; it contains hierarchical, equivalence, and associative relationships. The focus of each ULAN record is an artist.
