    Architecture was where the Gothic style had the most impact. The prevailing architectural style of medieval times was called Romanesque. While the revival of Greco-Roman ideals was one of the primary principles of the Renaissance, the Romanesque style owed less to classical Roman architecture than it did to the Byzantine ideal. The buildings were characterized by Roman architectural features such as domes, rounded barrel vaults, and semicircular arches. However, when this form was translated through the Byzantine filter, the overall look was solid and heavy. Byzantine walls were thick, and the windows were small and deeply recessed. Romanesque buildings were dimly lit. The overall effect was somber and heavy.
    The Gothic ideal presented a building style which was also massive, but its goal was to create an effect that was magnificent, soaring, and full of light. Gothic churches began rising in France around 1135. The intent of the builders was to inspire awe.
    Gothic cathedrals were towering, majestic buildings elaborately decorated with statues of saints and hideous monsters called gargoyles. Gargoyles were created as warnings to sinners of the hellish punishments awaiting them. They were also used to ward off evil spirits. However, the grotesque statues also served a practical purpose, as waterspouts designed to drain water from a structure’s gutter. The outer walls of Gothic buildings were supported by arching frameworks called flying buttresses. The advanced engineering skills involved in this unusual design suggest the early beginnings of the humanistic scientific revolution.
