Discovering Cathedrals


This full colour pocket-guide takes us on a tour of the 48 Anglican cathedrals of England and Wales, providing a brief history of each and pointing out particularly notable architectural features. The book begins with a guide to recognising the various phases of architectural style, from Norman to the Gothic revival, and a discussion of their potent symbolism, their enrichment through tombs, stained glass, woodcarvings and other works of art, their use of space and their revival. David Pepin also considers briefly English and Welsh Catholic cathedrals and Scotland's mostly ruinous medieval cathedrals. This new seventh edition has been completely revised and enhanced by the addition of many colour photographs.
