Jäggi, Carola; Meier, Hans-Rudolf (2004). »... migravit ad Christum sepultusque in cripta suburbano civitatis illius ...«: zur Genese der Krypta in der frühmittelalterlichen Sakralarchitektur. In: Graenert, Gabriele. Hüben und Drüben: Räume und Grenzen in der Archäologie des Frühmittelalters. Fest-schrift für Prof. Max Martin zu seinem 65. Geburtstag. Liestal: Archäologie und Kantonsmuseum Baselland, 129-140.

Abstract

The genesis of the medieval crypt is usually explained in the literature on architectural history with reference to models in Rome. Recent archaeological research in France and Switzerland, however, shows that in Gaul an independent development since late antiquity led to solutions which already in Merovingian times show all the characteristics of "genuine crypts". Using the examples of St-Gervais in Geneva, St-Laurent in Grenoble, St-Just in Lyon and St-Pierre in Vienne, these pre- and early forms of the medieval crypt are presented and their by no means linear genesis explained.
