Gothic or DarkWare:
pertaining to a literary style of fiction prevalent in the late 18th
and early 19th centuries which emphasized the grotesque, mysterious,
and desolate: a gothic novel Gothic and Dark art moved from the
idealized to the natural. There was a revival in the 18th and the 19th
century heavily influenced by nostalgia and Gothic and Dark jewelry.
Castles on hill tops, thunder, lightning, storm clouds, knights,
dragons, musical song and dance numbers? There is a strong
medievalist element in many of today's Goths. Skulls and pentagrams
wolves vampires witches and other evil are parts of the Dark society.
Art historian and biographer Giorgio Vasari was the first to classify
the movement as Gothic when he wrote, "Then arose new architects who
after the manner of their barbarous nations erected buildings in that
style which we call Gothic."
Gothic architecture - typified with soaring roofs and exquisite
stained glass fought a constant battle with gravity where architects
needed to work out how to keep the massive stone structures up. The
name Gothic, was taken from the barbarians who brought about the fall
of Rome in the sixth century, as Italy at that point of time was
harking back to the classical age for inspiration in art, architecture
and sculptor. Women have often been seen as the most neglected segment
of medieval dark society.
More and more medievalists are studying
women and gender roles, and the Celtic fringe has provided both great
subjects and great controversies . Wendy Davies has perhaps taken the
most comprehensive survey of Celtic or dark women in the early Middle
Ages, and placed them in the wider European context . We sell handcrafted
