History of England's Cathedrals

«“A detailed, chronological discussion of cathedral architecture and, more broadly, [the] forms of worship, the roles of the clergy, the activities of the laypeople. . . . As Mr. Orme makes clear, cathedrals in England . . . remain active centers of religious life. While some . . . may have shed their Gothic dress, for the most part the English cathedral endures in its essential form.”—Benjamin Riley, Wall Street Journal

“A fascinating and detailed description of the historical development of the English cathedral from the arrival of Christianity in A.D. 314 until the present day.”—Joan Greatrex, Catholic Historical Review

“Delightful. . . . A history of English cathedrals as living institutions as well as architectural monuments.”—Peter Atkinson, Journal of Ecclesiastical History

“Magisterial. . . . Charts the remarkable voyage of cathedrals during their 1700-year history.”—Michael Tavinor, Church Times

“A masterful narrator of the Cathedral story. . . . Cathedrals stand as shrines to the beauty of human creation, beauty as yet unsurpassed. To their survival we should all be dedicated.”—Simon Jenkins, Country Life

“This is one of the very few [books] looking at [Cathedrals] as ancient institutions surviving through so many centuries. It is a fine achievement and is highly recommended.”—Douglas Young, Aspects of History

“The Cathedrals of England are institutions older than the realm itself, and are perhaps more cherished and flourishing now than they have ever been, as this richly enjoyable volume makes clear. There can be no-one better qualified than Nicholas Orme to present the full range of their long history.”—Diarmaid MacCulloch, author of A History of Christianity

“Clear, accessible, and superbly illustrated, this book should be essential reading for visitors to English cathedrals. The book has no rival in serious and accessible literature. Anyone interested in cathedrals should have it on their shelves.”David Rollason, author of The Power of Place
