Conventional studies of the Catalan Romanesque do not do justice to the true nature of this art. To remedy this, Diether Rudloff offers us not only an artistic appreciation of these works but also an absolutely new study of the values and the essence of the Romanesque in Catalonia. His vision tends towards a modern cognitive Goetheanism, nuanced by the ideas of Rudolf Steiner, who sees the various historical stages of the human consciousness as an expression of the metamorphosis of a constant spiritual awareness. Notable among the various types of work considered by the author are the monasteries, with their magnificent cloisters Sant Fruitós, Elna, Girona Cathedral, Ripoll, L'Estany and Santes Creus, as well as sculptures, codices and murals, such as those in Sant Climent de Taüll and Santa Maria d'Esterri d'Aneu, many of which are today found in museums in Barcelona and Vic.
