Formal configuration of the Romanesque rosets of the city of Zamora (2015)

TESIS: (Thesis)

Title: Normal configuration of the Romanesque rosettes of the city of Zamora. (2015)

  • Author(s): Edgar Javier Vargas Martínez.
  • Director(s): Ismael García Ríos and Raul Fraga Isasa.
  • Summary: This thesis studies the Romanesque rosettes of the city of Zamora. The choice of theme aims to deepen the knowledge of these elements since the existing information about them is very scarce. The analysis of these rosettes has been carried out from a globalizing perspective that covers aspects such as geographical, morphological, functional, compositional, constructive, geometric, ornamental, others. Likewise, for the development of this research has been considered necessary the study of historical, stylistic, symbolic, religious, cultural, etc., themes that provide the contextual framework that allow their best understanding. The study of each rose window has allowed to implement and develop an analytical working method based on the particular study of a number of aspects such as those mentioned above, as well as to propose a strategy that allows the graphical reconstitution of the rosettes, based on a system of modules that make it easier to work according to the proportions of the elements; fact that allows us to approach with great accuracy the representation of the real object when measures are lacking. The development of this research has led to establish among other things that the definition of "circular window" attributed to Romanesque rosettes is not accurate, since the role they play in the religious building is rather of a symbolic character.

The analysis of these rosettes has been made from a globalizing perspective that covers aspects such as geographic, morphological, functional, compositional, constructive, geometric, ornamental, others. Likewise, for the development of this research it has been considered necessary to study historical, stylistic, symbolic, religious, cultural, etc. topics, which provides the contextual framework that allows for better understanding. The study of each rosette has allowed to implement and develop an analytical work method based on the particular study of aspects such as the ones mentioned above, as well as to propose a strategy that allows the graphic reconstitution of the rosettes , based on a system of modules that make it easier to work according to the proportions of the elements; fact that allows us to approach the representation of the real object with great accuracy measurements when they are lacking. The development of this research has led to establish among other things that the definition of "circular window" that is attributed to the Romanesque rosettes is not accurate, since the function they fulfill in the religious building is rather symbolic. ABSTRACT This thesis studies the Romanesque rose windows of the Zamora city. The choice of topic is intended to deepen the knowledge of these elements as the existing information about them is very scarce. The analysis of these rose windows was made from a global perspective covering aspects such as geographic, morphological, functional, compositional, construction, geometric, ornamental, other. Also, for the development of this research it was considered necessary to study historical, stylistic, symbolic, religious, cultural issues, etc., that provide stenicis the contextual framework that allows for better understanding. The study of each rose windows has allowed to implement and develop a method of analytical work based on the particular study of issues such as those mentioned above, as well as the strategy that allows the graphic reconstitution of the rose windows, based on system of modules facilitate work according to the proportions of the elements; made with great precision approach allows the representation of the real thing when it lacks measures. The development of this research has led to establish among other things that the definition of "circular window" that is attributed to the Romanesque rose windows is not successful because the role in the religious building is rather symbolic.
