Architecture as Cosmology examines the precedents, interpretations, and influences of the architecture of Lincoln Cathedral. The book analyzes the origin and development of the architectural forms, which were to a great extent unprecedented and were very influential in the development of English Gothic architecture and in conceptions of architecture to the present day. The book emphasizes the relation of the architectural forms to medieval philosophy, focusing on the writings of Robert Grosseteste, Bishop of Lincoln 1235-53. The architecture is seen as a text of the philosophy, cosmology, and theology of medieval English culture.
