During the course of European History, the Gothic Period came before the Baroque Period. "Gothic" refers especially to a style of architecture (although much else was also involved) that first appeared in the Middle Ages during the 12th century. By contrast, "Baroque" refers to a distinctive style of architecture (and much else) that first appeared in the 1600s.
