the defining external characteristic of gothic architecture. These buttresses effectively spread the weight of the new designs, taking the weight off the walls and transferring force directly to the ground. S1-ARCHITECTURE VAULTED CEILINGS utilized the technology
of the pointed arch to spread force and weight from upper floors. The arch also provided the impression of height and magnificence, giving the vaulted ceiling a feeling of grandeur and elegance. One of the fundamental characteristics
of gothic architecture was its height.
New building techniques
(such as the flying buttress, detailed next)
enabled architects to spread
the weight of taller walls and loftier towers. One of the most notable characteristics of gothic architecture is the gargoyle. Gargoyles are decorative, monstrous little creatures, perched at along the roofs and battlements of gothic buildings and castles.
Gargoyles have a practical purpose: they're spouts, enabling rainwater to drain off the roof and gush through their mouths, before plummeting to the ground (guttering is a relatively recent innovation!).
However, gargoyles had another intended purpose: to strike fear into the hearts of ill-educated Medieval peasants, scaring them into the church or cathedral. Many gargoyles include elements of the grotesque: exaggerated, evil features or threatening poses, which would have leered down from on-high. The innovation of the pointed arch which was the defining internal characteristic of gothic architecture. Its significance was both practical and decorative S3-Attire Women's

These themes parallel with the interests of the Romantic Period, which is why Gothic was revived. William Blake - "Nebuchadnezza"
During the age of the "enlightenment" the early mathmatical
scientisits had made discoveries that many people thought that they could
bent the world and biology too there will. William Blake believed in imagination
as powerful developments of the human mind. and as a supporting idea of the Romantic Period depicted that man would turn into beasts upon these Dicoveries. Gothic art originated in France during the twelfth century and spread across Europe remaining popular until the Renaissance.
When the Renaissance began Gothic art was seen as being vulgar and so was named after the Gothic tribes that destroyed the Roman Empire and classicism during the fifth century.
Around the time of the 4th century the Goths started becoming Christianized. And around the same time this is when the Goths began to start writing their own language using their own version of the Futhark alphabet. Bishop Wufila a Greek missionary that helped the Goths convert to Christianity took the Greek alphabet and added certain letters from the Latin and Futhark Languages and created a new alphabet to write the Gothic language. The Goths spoke a Germanic language,
and it is unique.
The language is important to the study of the history of the Germanic language because its records are similar to other Germanic languages. Most of the modern knowledge came from the remains of the translation of the bible.
The language eventually died out after the fall of the Ostrogoths kingdom fell in Italy in the 6th century. S5-Gothic Language Gothic language Men's clothing
