Architecture of cathedrals and great churches - Wikipedia
The term Gothic was coined by classicizing Italian writers of the Renaissance, who attributed the invention (and what to them was the non-classical ugliness) of medieval architecture to the barbarian Gothic tribes that had destroyed the Roman Empire and its classical culture in the 5th century Ad.
Gothic pinnacles – ArS Artistic Adventure of Mankind
As to audience, I teach all boys – I mean MEN (of course). As gendered as this sounds, it has given me permission to take them outside and bang sticks in the ground to lay out cathedrals and keeps on the broad lawns of our Virginia Piedmont. It is hard to pound a stake and stretch a string AND read a text message – unless it is from Gervaise of Canterbury. And I know that I would have responded to this sort of thing as an undergraduate – even as a girl (sarcasm intended). My problem is to make sure we don’t slip back into middle school.
Among the finest examples of the Perpendicular Gothic style are Gloucester Cathedral (14th-15th centuries) and King's College Chapel, Cambridge (1446-1515).

The Capilla del Condestable in Burgos cathedral (1482-94) provides an elaborate example of Spanish Flamboyant, as does--on a larger scale--Segovia cathedral (begun 1525).There was a final flowering of Gothic architecture in Portugal under King Manuel the Fortunate (1495-1521).

I no longer feel capable of keeping up. Theory after theory advanced, approach after approach offered up. I have had to skip over postcolonialism entirely and had just begun to see and employ the implications of visuality when, wait, visuality out, materiality in. And then there is thing theory. I find all of these different perspectives fascinating and stimulating but cannot figure out how they can help re-shape my research and my teaching. I am overwhelmed and find myself retreating back into the safety of “look—Chartres, classic Gothic Cathedral.” And yet, I cannot see spending whatever professional time I have left offering up the illusion that there is a clearly defined Romanesque and a clearly recognizable Gothic and the two shall never meet … except in Italy of course, and then there are those annoying non-French looking English buildings, and let’s just forget about eastern Europe, and why should we care anyway? Something has to give.

What happened by the time I got to UAlbany? For one thing, I no longer had exclusively art students, who may have their frustrations for an academic, but who are also pretty much game for anything wacky and never require a justification for looking at visual material. For another thing, I was now in a tenure-track position in a research university and had to pump out the publications for tenure. Revamping an entire curriculum was simply not on, nor welcome. So I went along with what I had. But there is a more serious reason for my not seriously challenging my own ossified curriculum: I felt and feel woefully unprepared to do so. I am of a generation of art historians for whom the first whispers of critical theory came after grad school. I was trained most traditionally—periodicity, formal analysis, base and molding profiles, iconography etc. My only experience with anything else came by way of Linda Seidel, who as a Visiting Professor at Columbia introduced us to feminism (much to the dismay of the Columbia faculty) and anthropological concepts such as liminality. Otherwise, I became, like so many others, a self-made theorist, and not a very good one either. Nevertheless, in those days it was mainly Derrida, Foucault, and Lacan, and a little later Žižek, and maybe Kristeva. It seemed possible to have something of a grasp of the main ideas.

Arguably, Rodin's true predecessors were the Gothic sculptors, for he was a passionate admirer of the of France, from whose heroic reliefs he derived much of his inspiration.
