Abstract: The purpose of this study is to provide the teacher of the secondary school general music class with a body of information concerning the cultural activity of the Gothic period. Although this material is intended for presentation in a music class, the music is viewed in relation to the other Medieval arts rather than as a separate entity. Chapter I presents a general introduction to the following forces that shaped the environment of the Gothic artist: the all-pervading influence of the Church as both a theological and a political institution, the major philosophical theories of the period, the effect of the crusades, the social implications of die chivalric code, the location and function of major cities and cultural centers, and the nature and extent of education in the Middle Ages.
