Welcome to CRSBI

The Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture will be a complete online record of all the surviving Romanesque sculpture in Britain and Ireland, at more than 5000 sites. It provides us with a unique window on the aesthetics, beliefs, daily life, preoccupations, humour and technical skills of the artists and people of this creative and formative era from the late 11th century to the late 12th century.

Every entry is freely available and includes information on the historical and architectural context of the building, a first-class photographic record, and a scholarly description of the sculpture. Our work continues and many sites are already available on this website.

Our latest selection shows some of the twelfth-century fonts in Northamptonshire.

This website was updated in early 2020 to improve the search functionality. We want to hear your view on the changes. Please send us feedback at info@crsbi.org.
