Product description


Simon Jenkins has provided a feast for both eyes and mind in this sumptuously illustrated guide to Europe's greatest cathedrals. His Introduction, and description of the history and architecture of each cathedral, bring the living reality of these works of art into sharp and vivid focus -- John Barton, author of A History of the Bible

As ever, Simon Jenkins is here the best sort of guide to some of Europe's greatest buildings and their settings: well-informed, elegantly opinionated and passionate in his feelings for his subject. Set out on your European travels expecting to be entertained as well as informed -- Diarmaid MacCulloch, author of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years

An engaging mixture of personal recollection and grand narrative, this book introduces the reader to the astonishing variety and invention of Europe's cathedrals, from Albi to Wells. Concise accounts and beautiful images conjure up what are still, after centuries among the largest and most complex buildings ever built -- Ed Hollis, author of The Secret Lives of Buildings

This is a thrilling book. Jenkins combines formidably wide knowledge with infectious enthusiasm for these medieval marvels. A joy -- Ken Follett, author of The Pillars of the Earth --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
