Gothic Architecture Flying Buttress

Wiki info

The term "Gothic architecture" originated as a pejorative description.

Vasari was not alone among 15th and 16th Italian writers, as Filarete and Giannozzo Manetti had also written scathing criticisms of the Gothic style, calling it a "barbaric prelude to the Renaissance. " Vasari and company were writing at a time when many aspects and vocabulary pertaining to Classical architecture had been reasserted with the Renaissance in the late 15th and 16th centuries, and they had the perspective that the "maniera tedesca" or "maniera dei Goti" was the antithesis of this resurgent style leading to the continuation of this negative connotation in the 17th century. François Rabelais, also of the 16th century, imagines an inscription over the door of his utopian Abbey of Thélème, "Here enter no hypocrites, bigots. . . " slipping in a slighting reference to "Gotz" and "Ostrogotz. "[a]Molière, belonging in the 17th century, also made this note of the Gothic style in the 1169 poem La Gloire:
