fortified church


Quick Reference

Churches designed like donjons (square, circular, or polygonal), e.g. in Southern France or Denmark, or with fortified elements, e.g. in the Dordogne or Languedoc. In Alsace and Lorraine several Romanesque and Gothic Kirchenburgen were attached to city walls, with the space above the vaulted ceilings serving as redoubts.
