Riassunto: The English medieval cathedrals are one of the wonders of the world. But who made them, and why? This fascinating new history of England's cathedrals explores a previously unconsidered view of these extraordinary creations: as constantly-changing structures created by a rich brew of ancient rituals, beliefs, personalities and politics - a living window on to the past. Incorporating the latest historical research, Jon Cannon presents a picture of the English cathedrals as above all products of their time, not just great architectural monuments. These were buildings brought alive by the messages encoded in their sculpture - and the miraculous events that were believed to occur within them. Full of personalities, ideas, stories and novel interpretations, here are the cathedrals of England as you may never have considered them before. Handsomely illustrated with specially commissioned photographs and diagrams, including thematic chapters on key aspects and separate essays on every medieval cathedral in England, this magnificent volume is indispensable to every lover of history and architecture.
L'autore: Jon Cannon has worked for ten years in the heritage industry, including for the Royal Commission on the Historical Monuments of England, and English Heritage. In 2001 he was shortlisted for the David Watt Memorial Prize. He lives in Wiltshire.
