Winchester Curiosities

Price: 11.84

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous little guide book, 15 May 2014

This review is from: Winchester Curiosities (Paperback)
I have a number of guide books about Winchester and this one is my favourite. Its easy to dip into and gives lots of interesting information in bite-size chunks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great LIttle book (but too expensive!), 15 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The resources in this book are tremendously useful when doing saints days. There is also a little section at the back which has the music for the Eucharistic prayers on special occasions. Its just a pity the book itself is so expensive (hence removing a star). The binding is also rather annoying as it picks up the dirt really easily and therefore looks scruffier than its years in a short period of time. But its still one that should sit on the shelf of the vestry of any church that has midweek services.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a vacuum I enjoy using, 28 April 2014
Normally I hate vacuuming. I really really hate it. But finally someone has invented a vacuum that gets rid of all the things I find so annoying about vacuuming. The weight (this is really light). The fact that you have to keep plugging and unplugging it (no wires!) The fact that the cables kept getting in the way (again no wires!) The fact that normally vacuums are difficult to manoeuvre (this one is really easy and bends into all the tightest spots without hassle. The only strange thing is that it sounds like a hairdryer so my initial perception was that it surely couldn't do the job, but it did. Battery life isn't enormous but is plenty to do a couple of rooms at a time. ( I got three done on one charge)

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous book, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is like a world tour of the most beautiful aspects of the loveliest churches of the world (mostly European) in a small package. It has a handy glossary at the back which explains technical terms in easy to understand language and is a fascinating guide to the history, symbolism and development of church buildings throughout the ages. Reading it is as refreshing as going on a short holiday.

The Rationale Divinorum Officiorum: The Foundational Symbolism of the Early Church, Its Structure, Decoration, Sacraments, and Vestments
by Gulielmus Durandus
Edition: Paperback
Price: 33.04

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting stuff, 9 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is fascinating to read about the different layers of symbolic meaning that priests in the middle ages put upon the different aspects of the church building and liturgy. It isn't clear from the description whether this book is in English or Latin. In fact it is in English (of a rather old-fashioned variety) but perfectly readable and the quaintness of the translation adds to the ancient feel of the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and atmospheric, 20 Feb 2013
William Dalrymple's descriptions of his travels are witty and fun to read. If you can't afford to go on holiday reading one of his books is the next best thing.
