Decoration:Churches: How To Read Them

  10 points 0 viewers scored

Discover the secret code built into every British church. To our ancestors, the Christian message - captured in plaster, paint and stone - would have been as immediate as a picture book. Today, the key to unlocking that code has been lost. This authoritative guide reveals not only the religious symbolism that imbues sacred spaces, but also the rich social history that has bound together Church and people for so many centuries. From stained glass windows to the magnificent - or simple - fabric of the buildings themselves, everything is steeped in significance.
