Description

Excerpt from The Tower Maiden Across the fourth side of the square stood a church that seemed, like the houses at its foot, heedless of dull today and of the slow traffic of the market-place, and busy with old memories; starkly plain, yet overloaded here and there with a profusion of barbaric orna ment, without repose or symmetry, it drove the mind rather to thoughts of wars and tumults than of piety: it stood above the town more like an aged warrior dozing in his armour than a ministering priest. The high tower that reared its naked shaft at one end was crowned with a metal cupola, green, curved, and dinted, like a bronze helmet that had rung in many an ancient battlefield.
