Romanesque art has been preserved essentially in its religious manifestations, which is why its most representative works are the cathedrals and above all the great monasteries. Geographically, it is a style that originated and spread throughout the Christian territories of Western Europe, and only exceptionally is it found outside its limits.
In its evolution, two main stages can be distinguished. One is the so-called “early Romanesque, or “first Romanesque”, also called the Lombard style, and the other is the “second Romanesque”, covering respectively the whole of the 11th century, the one, and from the middle of the 11th century to the 13th century, the other.
The remarkable unity of Romanesque art, despite its many varieties, can be partly explained by the existence of itinerant workshops of builders (the so-called Lombard masters or “magistri comacini”), who travelled through Europe along the great pilgrimage routes such as the Way of St. James.
