The onesided- ness of Hahnloser’s and Frankl’ s interpretations is gradually giving way to a more balanced view and to new questioning about the nature and purpose of Villard’s This study is a part of this re-evaluation 7. As Robert Willis first observed in 29the inscriptions came after the drawings, for in many instances they were carefully fitted around drawings See PL 4 b.
There is little iconographie continuity in this quire. This thesis was possible only because Hahnloser reorganized the quires and hypothetically filled in gaps to create a more cadnet and thorough schema for Villard than is present in the portfolio now or could have been present in it originally.

If these questions are ever to be answered, it is necessary to approach MS Fr. There is also an iconographical and linguistic parallel to the two texts As an example of your approach to recording in general, how is your vocal style for Ossuaires connected to the specific acoustics of the ee where this took place?
After an intensive survey of almost all Gothic churches in the vilkard of Villard de Honnecourt possibly he was born in Picardy we decided to make the recording in the church of Saint-Yved-en-Braine, not far from Soissons.
