The English Cathedrals (Paperback)

Andrew Sanders

-  

England is blessed with many beautiful cathedrals, including the world-renowned Durham, with its geometrically carved pillars, Wells, with its astonishingly graceful scissor arch, and the gloriously uplifting Ely and its octagonal tower. For a millennia and more, these and similar buildings have welcomed and inspired generations of believers with their beauty and grandeur. This book is a highly readable account of the history of England's cathedrals, from Anglo-Saxon times to the present day. The author discusses their significance, from a time when faith was an integral part of everyday life to the present, more secular society. The author also discusses the developments in cathedral architecture over the centuries and the English cathedral city. English Cathedrals is an accessible and handy guide to the greatest architectural and religious buildings in England.
