Product description

Review

"[Ball] has a knack for translating difficult concepts into lucid prose: he offers a refreshingly sceptical guided tour of Chartres Cathedral and the intellectual contents that helped produce it" (Daily Telegraph)

"Lucid and resplendent...a model of explanatory writing" (John Carey Sunday Times)

"Consistently and healthily sceptical ... an intelligent, enjoyable and well-produced book which deserves a wide audience" (Times Literary Supplement)

"An original and imaginative synthesis of art history and history of science" (History Today)

"Lucid and resplendent" (The Times)

Review

'lucid, resplendent book'
