Book Description English cathedrals, including Canterbury, Durham, Winchester and York, are the greatest collective work of art and architecture in Britain, reflecting over a thousand years of history. English Cathedrals is an account of their foundation, construction and decoration--their architectural history--but also of who used them and what happened in them--their human history. Cathedrals were centers of learning, music and wealth. These great buildings remain striking monuments in the landscape with a unique power to evoke the past. This book is indispensable for armchair travelers, tourists, and anyone with an interest in architecture and the history of Britain.
