marginalia

loquacious- an inclination to talk incessantly or to keep a constant flow of chatter

laconic- (of a person, speech, or style of writing) using very few words

parochial- of or relating to a perish
or - having a limited or narrow outlook or scope

audacious- showing a willingness to take surprisingly bold risks
or - showing an impudent lack of respect

"Medieval aesthetic produced the single most prodigious outpouring of architectural energy then at any other time in all human history until the modern era; unmatched in beauty, enduring in character, stunning in engineering innovation, and breathtaking in spiritual aspiration." Umberto Eco
