Cathedrals Summary

Cathedrals by David Pepin

There are forty-eight Anglican cathedrals in England and Wales. Some of them are ancient places of worship, rich in history and of grand proportions; others are more recent structures of the best of contemporary craftsmanship. There are chapters on the major cathedral-building periods and descriptions of all forty-eight English and Welsh Anglican cathedrals: these comprise brief tours highlighting major features, guiding the reader through the building with the aid of a sketch plan. Roman Catholic cathedrals are also briefly described, but those of Westminster and Liverpool are more fully covered. There are brief descriptions of the ancient Scottish cathedrals, now mainly ruinous, and lists the cathedrals of the Episcopal and Roman Catholic churches in Scotland.
