If These Stones Could Talk: The History of Christianity in Britain and Ireland through Twenty-One Buildings [9781529396423]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The UK's parish churches, chapels, cathedrals, convents, abbeys and monasteries, spanning 1600 years, are a spectacularly rich but often overlooked heritage. Many are visited for their architectural and aesthetic qualities - they make up 45% of all Grade 1 listed buildings in the country - but rarely is the deeper historical story that they tell explored and joined up into a single narrative in our sceptical, secular times.

This book tells that story - the story of Christian faith as it made its way into and through the British Isles - and how it has been expressed in our real, material ways of life.

'There is no better navigator through the space in which art, culture and spirituality meet than Peter Stanford' Cole Moreton, Independent on Sunday
