st. clement of tahull church

A strong theocentrism is reflected in this same way. Concretely, there is an image of God as a vengeful and judging being (pantocrator), as we see in the paintings of this art, and the little importance of light.

Its influences are Italian, since it is there where the first Romanesque arises, also called Lombard Romanesque, since from San Abundio or San Ambrosio of Milan we observe that it copies the plant with three naves and apses at the end of each one, as well as placing a crypt under the prebisterium.

Regarding the later influences, we can observe them in later works of Lombard Romanesque, as in San Clemente de Tahull, which has three naves, Lombard arches and is built in stone. We will also observe it in the later Romanesque, which copied the plants, naves, decorations and materials.

San Vicente de Cardona[2][3] (in Catalan Sant Vicenç de Cardona) is an early Romanesque church located in the walled enclosure of the Castle of Cardona, in Cardona (Barcelona). The architect of the work is unknown, although it is known that its contractor was the viscount Bermon and its promoter the abbot Oliba. The work was built between 1029 and 1040.

The first human settlements in the Cardona complex date back to pre-Roman times, being the Iberians who mainly populated the region. However, the place became more important in the Carolingian period, with the formation of the Hispanic mark. Specifically, Louis the Pious, son of Charlemagne, ordered in 798 the capture of the Castrum Cardonam as a strategic place for the subsequent capture of Barcino.

The first evidence of the existence of a church in the precinct of Cardona dates from 980. This primitive church was enlarged and improved between 1029 and 1040 under the impulse of Viscount Bermon, following in the wake of the reforms carried out by Abbot Oliba in other Catalan religious centers such as Ripoll, Cuixá, Vich or Canigó.

XI being its construction quite fast, between 1029 and 1040, so it is quite homogeneous.    First it was a parish church and later it would be occupied by a community of monks.

.    It has a basilica plan with three naves preceded by a narthex, a transept that does not protrude, a transept that is marked on the outside by an octagonal dome and three apses that correspond to the respective naves.    In all the apses there are arches and Lombard bands that contribute to the idea of verticality and break the monotony of the wall, and in the central apse there are blind windows whose horizontality breaks the vertical scheme.    Arches and bands are characteristic of the Lombard influence.

The material used is the irregular stone wall or ashlar.    In any case the wall predominates over the span, some of them flared, so that in the interior space zones of lights and shadows are established that contribute to increase the mystery of the sacred.
