Abstract :
Examines the structural evidence for the claims made on behalf of the 14th-c. master mason, John Lewyn. It suggests that comparison of artistic detail has limited usefulness when attempting to identify his work. Buildings which, on a superficial level, bear little resemblance to one another, can nevertheless be shown to have significant mutuality of concept when studied in depth. Thus, a close examination of John Lewyn's known works and contemporary buildings suggests that Lewyn was the dominant influence in the northern region during the later 14th c., and that he retained control of planning to a fine level, whilst allowing his deputies varying degrees of independence in the execution of detail. ;
