Medieval Period
13th – 14th Century

Statues where frowned upon and painted images where flat so as not to represent the soul of the sitter.  Pope Gregory declared in the 6th Century that pictures where a good method of telling bible stories.  This pronouncement gave more latitude to artists, as virtually all themes were considered religious.
