The term was invented by 19th-century art historians, especially for Romanesque architecture, which retained many basic features of Roman architectural style - most notably round-headed ... Romanesque architecture is an architectural style of medieval Europe characterized by semi-circular arches. There is no consensus for the beginning date of the Romanesque style, with proposals ranging from the 6th to the 11th century, this later date being the most commonly held. An atmosphere of light and glowing colour seems to have been one of the basic spiritual needs of the Romanesque.
The First Romanesque style developed in the north of Italy, parts of France, and the Iberian Peninsula in the 10 th century prior to the later influence of the Abbey of Cluny. The style is attributed to architectural activity by groups of Lombard teachers and stonemasons working in the Catalan territory during the first quarter of the 11th century.
