Treasures of Westminster Abbey celebrates an iconic building and its rich artistic heritage. Seventeen out of the thirty-nine sovereigns crowned in Westminster Abbey also lie buried within its walls. Their medieval and Renaissance tombs, though among the most important in Europe, form only a small part of the extraordinary collection of gravestones, memorials and monumental sculpture for which the Abbey has long been famous and which is comprehensively surveyed in this lavishly illustrated book.
Ranging from the thirteenth-century shrine of St Edward and the Renaissance splendour of Henry VII’s Lady Chapel, to the literary memorials of Poets’ Corner and the statues of twentieth-century martyrs on the Abbey’s west front, Treasures of Westminster Abbey describes the stained glass, furniture, sculpture, textiles, wall paintings and many other historic artefacts found within this remarkable church.
