ISBN 0901897191 "Externally, the Fishermen's Chapel is a plain, rectangular structure with no sign of ornamentation or suggestion of the glory that it holds within. But once inside, the visitor is confronted with an experience of unparalleled delight: the walls and the stone-vaulted ceiling are covered with Old and New Testament scenes, executed in bright colours. For more than six hundred years these medieval paintings have survived the ravages of time and man, and although they are now far from complete, their impact is nevertheless stunning: the message they conveyed to medieval worshippers is still there to be read today. Between 1982 and 1988, an integrated programme of research and investigation, conservation and repair, refurbishment and revitalization, took place with an interdisciplinary and internationally recruited team. The results of their findings have now been distilled and are presented in this volume." Chapter headings: Historical Introduction; A Brief Description of the Chapel; The Wall Paintings; Archaeological Investigations; Structural Analysis; Architectural Style and Dating; Conservation and Restoration; Synthesis and Interpretation; Technical Appendices. Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, very light soiling mark in margin of page125. Dust jacket has light rubbing, one tiny edge tear, tiny dent on spine. VG+/VG
