The His­tory of Eng­land’s Cathe­drals

Evergreen - - Summer 2018 -

Eng­land’s sixty or so Angli­can and Ro­man Catholic cathe­drals are among its most iconic build­ings and at­tract thou­sands of wor­ship­pers and vis­i­tors ev­ery year. Yet though much has been writ­ten about their ar­chi­tec­ture, there is no com­plete guide to their his­tory and ac­tiv­i­ties. This book ex­plains their lay­out, the peo­ple who ran them, their wor­ship and mu­sic, their links with learn­ing and ed­u­ca­tion, and their out­reach to so­ci­ety. It re­lates their his­tory to the his­tory of Eng­land and shows how they adapted to change and weather dis­as­ters to sur­vive as great repos­i­to­ries of our na­tional his­tory.
