God's beasts

£27.99

Product description

Using photographs, stories and his own research, as well as references from the Folio Society's book, Bestiary, the author explains how to identify and interpret the moral messages conveyed by medieval church carvings.

The book shows little wear and its covers and pages are glossy. The covers are decorated with colour photographs of church carvings. Inside there are over 100 alphabetically listed figures to be found within medieval Christian religious buildings. Stories illustrating the messages contained within the carvings are complemented by many black and white photographs.

An unusual book "It is, in many ways, a first in this field." A book to enable an interested person to gain much more information on visits to churches, where perhaps you wonder what are those carvings and why are they there.
