A complete history of one of the most pivotal religious buildings in England. Jonathan gives us an articulate in depth analysis of the history of Canterbury Cathedral with a strong architectural theme running through it. As well as his vast knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject, Jonathan's skill lies in articulating complex themes in simple and descriptive terms that draw you into the wonderfully organic growth of the building in physical, historical and political importance. Complemented by a new set of wonderful photographs and illustrations - this book is a must read for fans of architecture, archaeology, heritage and England's past.
