I was thinking Romanesque/Romane. I generally don’t use the term Renaissance for architecture as the period has a distinct change in style from early to late. I tend to use Italianate and Classical. Plus of course most French Renaissance ecclesiastical architecture is Gothic. @William & Helen – Then I’ll keep taking them :). @Susan – I shall bow to the expert for Renaissance. What would you call our house built in 1584? It’s always trickier with vernacular architecture. As a shorthand and in the absence of anything better, Renaissance would do, or 16th century. Good! I like to call it Renaissance 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
