First publication in English dedicated to medieval diamond vaults, concave-convex ceilings so complex that they evoke the facets of cut gemstones. First appearing in 1471 at the palace of Albrechtsburg in Meissen, Germany, they were employed for almost a century in locations as far apart as Gdansk on the Baltic to Bechyne in southern Bohemia.
