The focus is the abbey church of Ste. Madeleine in Vézelay, France. This monument, and the boldly carved sculpture that adorns it, exemplifies not only the artistic and religious activities of the 12th century but also the social, cultural and political events of the time, demonstrating how art and architecture were woven together with pilgrimages, monasticism and developing ideals of the Crusades. This talk presents one site as a model of the medieval universe.
