Was there ever such a thing as Carolingian statuary? Do the masterpieces of Romanesque sculpture in the Auvergne actually date from the twelfth century? Does thirteenth-century Saxon sculpture really derive from French models? When were the porch at Moissac, the tympanum at Conques, and the façade of Rheims cathedral built? Too often answers are based on fallacies, even though an earlier or later date can completely transform the artistic meaning or message of a work. If Saint Fides’s reliquary statue in Conques were really a Carolingian work, Charlemagne’s restrictions on cult images must have been unrealistic. In the context of the mid-twelfth century, the capitals of the Auvergne master of Mozat are incomprehensibly eccentric, whereas in the eleventh century, they become a major stage in the development of Romanesque sculpture, imitated as far as Compostela. Finally, as Jean Wirth demonstrates, precise dating is essential for drawing out the individuality and influence of the great medieval artists, instead of lumping them into schools and workshops.
