The English Cathedral [ePub]

by Russell Chamberlin

A FASCINATING LOOK AT THE ENGLISH CATHEDRAL - ITS HISTORY, ITS ARCHITECTURE, AND ITS PLACE IN THE COMMUNITY. USING A BIOGRAPHICAL APPROACH, RUSSELL CHAMBERLAIN TRACES BOTH THE CATHDRAL'S ANTECENDENTS AS WELL AS ITS OWN DEVELOPMENT, DESCRIBES ITS QUIRKS AND CHARACTERISTICS, AND SHOWS WHY CATHEDRALS MAY BE CONSIDERED THE HISTORY OF ENGLAND WRITTEN IN STONE - FROM EARLY SAXON BUILDINGS TO THOSE BUILT IN THE 20TH CENTURY - CHAMBERLAIN DISCUSSES HOW THEIR LOCATION AND STRUCTURE REFLECT THE CHURCH'S RELATION TO SOCIETY THROUGH THE AGES. PHOTOGRAPHS THROUGHOUT THE BOOK ILLUSTRATE BOTH ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS AND ECCLESIATICAL TREASURES.
