Through approximately a millennium of oral tradition, village master carpenters passed the secrets and skills needed to design, cut, join, and erect the magnificent wooden churches of the south slopes of the Coprathians. This seminal study focuses on wooden churches built by Romanian peasants, examining the evolution of church building from 1000-1900 in the region known as Maramures - a particularly powerful source of Romanian cultural tradition - from an art history perspective.
