From the Romanesque period on, most churches consist of either a single wide aisle or a central nave flanked by two narrow aisles. The aisles are separated from the nave by a row of columns, or more accurately by square stacks of masonry called piers, connected by arches. Sometimes in structures from the Romanesque and Gothic Ambulatory eras, you’ll see a second level, the clerestory, Apse above these arches (and hence above the Chapels low roof over the aisles) punctuated by Chancel windows. Altar This main nave and aisle assemblage is usually crossed by a perpendicular corridor called a transept, placed near the far, east end of the Transept church so that the floor plan looks like a Latin Cross (shaped like a crucifix).

The French had little to do with this movement, which started in Italy and was picked up only in Germany and the Low Countries. However, many Renaissance treasures are in French museums, thanks to collectors such as François I. Not until the 17th-century baroque did a few French masters emerge. This period is hard to pin down. In some ways a result of the Catholic Counter-Reformation, it reaffirmed spirituality in a simplified, monumental, and religious version of Renaissance ideals. In other ways, it delved even deeper into classical modes and a kind of superrealism based on using peasants as models and the chiaroscuro (contrast of light and dark) of the Italian painter Caravaggio.
