editor’s note

Dear Reader, Many people don’t believe me when I tell them that winter is my favorite season. Reactions range from amusement to incredulity when I say that I prefer the short days and long nights of wintertime.

art of darkness gothic, aesthetics, and knitting

Everyone has a different image in mind when they hear the word Gothic. Some picture the soaring edifices of many of Europe’s most famous cathedrals, while others imagine those cathedrals in ruins and inhabited by windswept maidens dressed in white. Still others may envision the barbarian tribes that plagued the Roman Empire, or the goth fashion movement popularized in the latter half of the twentieth century. Where, then, does true Gothic lie? The answer is a complicated labyrinth of history, terminology, politics, and culture. The term “Gothic” derives from the Latin term for a barbarian tribe in Northern Germany.
