Overview

Cathedrals by Robin S. Oggins

Beautiful and imposing, cathedrals were designed as monuments to the greater glory of God. They are important not only for spiritual reasons, but for their often splendid architecture. A medievalist leads an extraordinary photographic tour through the most magnificent examples, from Notre Dame in Paris to the Cathedral of the Holy Family in Nairobi, Kenya. Through engaging commentary, the history and evolution of these buildings unfold, beginning in the early Christian era and Emperor Constantine's conversion to Christianity in the 4th century, up through the Reformation, and right into the 20th century. Among the most spectacular: in the ruins of St. Andrews in Fife, Scotland; Manila Cathedral in the Philippines, rebuilt five times; and St. Patrick's in New York City.

The photographs are outstanding! A history of cathedral architecture, including European and worldwide. The information is present by country, each which had its distinct style of architecture. The facts are easy to read and very information. Put this one at the top of the stack on your coffeetable!
