This review is from: Medieval Wall Paintings in English and Welsh Churches (Paperback)
I feel that this has been a neglected subject;there was destruction of images in English Churches during the Reformation and it is tempting to believe that the destruction was complete, though specialists in the fields of ecclesistical history or art history would have had a different view. For the interested person who does not have the opportunity to range across the country this book provides a comprehensive survey. There does appear to be a renewal of interest in religious art, Icons of the Eastern Church in particular, and this volume sets the subject in a local context and reveals aspects of pre-reformation England which may have been ignored for too long. One would hope that it would have a wide appeal, attracting the attention of those interested in art, Christianity and history.
