Description
An engaging guide to the history and ritual meaning of site, design, layout, fixtures and fittings of parish churches, featuring colourful photographs drawn from examples across England and Wales. An insightful, accessible text explores the history behind familiar and unfamiliar features of many churches, local quirks and how the churches seen today reflect the changing fashions and prevailing beliefs of centuries. Full of fascinating details: learn why the North side of churchyards tend to be emptier; identify the era from which decorations date, reflecting the piecemeal evolution of the buildings; and discover the names for typical features, from ‘bale’ tombs and quoins to tympana and sedilia. An enriching overview to bring alive familiar buildings and a useful reference when visiting different regions.
