A fascinating mine of information,
This review is from: How To Read A Church: A Guide to Images, Symbols and Meanings in Churches and Cathedrals (Hardcover)
This book sets out to explain churches to people who don't know much about them, and even some who do.
Although it is simply written and set out, it contains a wealth of information, not easily accessible elsewhere, the about symbolism and purpose of church buildings. It gives clues about what to notice, and about the symbols to be found in pictures and on tombs.
The book will enrich any visit to a church - and could give teachers some interesting ideas about how to enliven and deepen lessons involving churches and church visits.
Simple, well done, excellent.
