Very interesting thread! fascinating, informative reading as always..
Not strictly on topic but i’ve been traveling on the continent recently and have noticed a number of larger churches, usually originally Romanesque structures with heavy Gothic modifications and extensions which seem to not have been consequentially built on an axis. The most noticeable examples being Strasbourg Cathedral and the church if St. Sebald in Nuremberg. In both these buildings the choir and nave are not aligned. Can anyone shed any light on this? Is it likely to be deliberate or simply a matter of cowboy building in the middle ages?
