An enjoyable presentation of British churches
on 14 October 2015
I enjoyed this DVD and the presentation made by Richard Taylor. He starts with the beginning of church building in Britain around the year 900, and continues up to our days. The visit to St. Mary in Kilpeck with the intriguing corbels and the fascinating portal, was especially interesting. Also his enthusiastic comments on angels and saints, made it highly enjoyable. The iconoclasm was well described, really sad, but all the episodes are instructive and if I should mention anything particularly nice, it would have to be the churches which were constructed by Christopher Wren after the great fire in London, when so many churches had to be rebuilt; among them St.Paul Cathedral.
There are so many interesting details to learn from these episodes. Richard Taylor is a good storyteller, and I recommend this DVD absolutely.
