How to Read a Church

Out of stock
  • Churches and cathedrals are visited by millions of tourists as well as worshippers every year. However, many people do not realise that church buildings are filled with images, symbols and meanings that often need explanation. This handy guide will unlock all the treasures they contain. The stunning colour photographs show the very best in church art and architecture - from paintings, fonts and altars, to pew ends, choir stalls and stained glass windows, and the accessible text talks you through the significance of church features.
    It includes sections on imagery, these and history; church architecture, inside and out; symbols, colours and words; representations of God, Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary; saints and angels; scenes from the Old Testament.
    It is the ultimate reference for anyone who wants to know more about what they see in a church or cathedral from the significance of church layouts, the symbolism of key scenes and the importance of small details.
