The case for its existence depends on the hypothesis of some radical break or coupure , generally traced back to the end of the s or the early s. As the word itself suggests, this break is most often related to notions of the waning or extinction of the hundred-year-old modern movement or to its ideological or aesthetic repudiation. Thus, abstract expressionism in painting, existentialism in philosophy, the final forms of representation in the novel, the films of the great auteurs , or the modernist school of poetry as institutionalized and canonized in the works of Wallace Stevens : all these are now seen as the final, extraordinary flowering of a high modernist impulse which is spent and exhausted with them. The list might be extended indefinitely; but does it imply any more fundamental change or break than the periodic style- and fashion-changes determined by an older high-modernist imperative of stylistic innovation? It is in the realm of architecture, however, that modifications in aesthetic production are most dramatically visible, and that their theoretical problems have been most centrally raised and articulated; it was indeed from architectural debates that my own conception of postmodernism—as it will be outlined in the following pages—initially began to emerge. High modernism is thus credited with the destruction of the fabric of the traditional city and of its older neighbourhood culture by way of the radical disjunction of the new Utopian high-modernist building from its surrounding context ; while the prophetic elitism and authoritarianism of the modern movement are remorselessly denounced in the imperious gesture of the charismatic Master.
The cardinal, the ultimate authority here, takes control of the situation. There are no approved quotes yet for this movie. Annabella resigns herself to marrying Soranzo, knowing she has to marry someone other than her brother. Young Parman nobleman Giovanni is desperately in love with his sister Annabella, and is overjoyed when she reciprocates his feelings.

Many writings believed in the Middle Ages to be his are now collected under the name Pseudo-Bonaventure. Almost nothing is known of his childhood, other than the names of his parents, Giovanni di Fidanza and Maria di Ritella. He entered the Franciscan Order in and studied at the University of Paris , possibly under Alexander of Hales , and certainly under Alexander's successor, John of Rochelle. A dispute between seculars and mendicants delayed his reception as Master until , where his degree was taken in company with Thomas Aquinas.
