This book covers 47 of the best-known and most historic churches and cathedrals within the Greater London area. It contains over 200 full-color photographs of both the exteriors and interiors of each building, highlighting particular features of architectural and historical significance. With a wealth of fascinating information for both the serious enthusiast and more casual secular visitors, The Churches and Cathedrals of London celebrates a glorious cultural heritage. Stephen Humphrey's authoritative text reveals the history of London's churches and cathedrals as the history of the city itself, and of the centuries of struggle and change that have shaped today's London: from the Great Fire in 1666 (that destroyed over 80 churches), through the upheavals of the Reformation to, more recently, the ravages of the Blitz.
