"Pre-Romanesque" is an architectural style from Western Europe, which preceded the beginning of the Romanesque period in the 11th century (ca. 5th-10th centuries). It is characterized by the introduction and absorption of classical Mediterranean and Christian forms with Germanic ones, creating innovative new forms.
