The elaboration reaches further in the detail from the nave of St. Mary's Beauchamp Abbey in Warwick on the left. Here, a series of short intermediary ribs known as LIERNES connect the tiercerons. LIERNES can be defined as shorter ribs between main ribs, or tertiary ribs that do not spring from either the main capitals nor from the central boss. The effect is a star-shaped, stellar or stellate vault. The complexity made possible by the addition of the lierne led to a whole variety of richly decorated vaults, including net vaults like this 14th century example from St. Mary Redcliffe in Bristol. Net and stellate vaults became particularly popular in Germany, but they were never popular in France or in Italy.
