What are Pendentives?

A)Free standing pillars
B)Semicircular arches
C)Octagonal lintels
D)Hemispherical dome

I'm not sure about this one. They are not A because they were not freestanding. D could be right because I've seen them described in such a way, but they weren't exactly domes. C could also be right because lintels are things that held up a structure, as did pendentives, but they weren't octagonal. So I would probably go with B.

The art that was practiced throughout Medieval Period was:

A)manuscript illumination
B)stained glass art
C)icon painting
D)wood carving

A

The following are the features of an ambulatory EXCEPT:

A)a walkway surrounding the church
B)contained niches with relics
C)allowed pilgrims to visit without disturbing the rituals
D)gave structural stability to the architecture

    I disagree with your last one.

    Well if that is not the answer then it would have to be A because C and D kind of go hand and hand.

  • Art -

    Yes, you're right.

    There's nothing "naturalistic" about cement or mortar! Those are man-made things.

    Yes, that makes sense. Thank you!

    You're welcome.
