Cambridgeshire churches

£19.99

Product description

Some three hundred parish churches are found in the enlarged county of Cambridgeshire and this is the only comprehensive academic study made of them. It has twenty-four chapters by distinguished architectural historians, each discussing a period or an aspect of the county's churches, and the whole is concluded with a 60-page index of defiant inclusivity. In Part One, chronological or stylistic periods are covered: Anglo-Saxon Churches by Morag Woudhuysen; Romanesque by Martin Smith; Transitional and Early English by Hal Burton; Decorated by Pamela Tudor-Craig; Perpendicular by Simon Cotton; Sixteenth- and Seventeenth-Century churches by Lynne Broughton; Victorian by Edward Baty; Twentieth-Century by Anthony Sursham; Non-Conformist Chapels and Meeting Houses by Christopher Stell; and Huntingdonshire Steeples by David Lloyd. Part Two consists of essays on specific aspects: Archaeology by Nicholas James; Dedications by Simon Cotton; Anglo-Saxon Sculpture by Isabel Henderson; Romanesque Sculpture by Faith Johnson; Post-Reformation Monuments by Christopher Seal; Images of Mortality on Monuments by Roger Bowdler; Medieval Stained Glass by Robert Beddow; Nineteenth and Twentieth-Century Stained Glass by Carola Hicks; Brasses by Nicholas Rogers; Wall Paintings by Pamela Tudor-Craig; Woodwork by Andrew Woodger; Bells by Ranald Clouston; and Clocks by C. A. Hartridge. There are a large number of photographs at the back, and several of the essays also contain diagrams or maps within the text. An essential book for anyone interested in architecture or Cambridgeshire (includes Huntingdonshire) local history.
