Architecture of Canterbury Cathedral by Jonathan Foyle



Architecture of Canterbury Cathedral by Jonathan Foyle

Architecture of Canterbury Cathedral by Jonathan Foyle. With a chapter by Heather Newton, Head of Masonry and Stone Conservation, new photography by Robert Greshoff and a foreword by Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury 2002-2012.

As the seat of archbishops, Canterbury Cathedral has been one of Britain's most important buildings for over 1400 years. However the church as we know it evolved most spectactularly between the eleventh to the fourteenth centuries. Within its designs are references to a world we have forgotten: its relationship to Rome, mythology, hidden geometry and the display of saintly relics.

Architectural historian and broadcaster Jonathan Foyle explains how Canterbury's turbulent and brilliant past shaped the cathedral, leaving us today with an extraordinary composite work of architecture.

The book features specially commissioned images by the architectural photographer Robert Greshoff as well as carefully selected archival illustrations, and includes a number of the author's own drawings. An additional chapter by Heather Newton covers the cathedral's modern conservation programme.
