A term for European art and architecture in the period from the second half of the 11th century to ca. 1200.  Romanesque churches were characterized by rounded stone arches and vaults, which gave rise to the term Romanesque (“Roman-like”), first used in the early 19th century. The period was also marked by the revival of large-scale architectural sculpture. Web resource here.
