Description

“Simon Jenkins has provided a feast for both eyes and mind in this sumptuously illustrated guide to Europe’s greatest cathedrals” John Barton, author of A History of the Bible

“As ever, Simon Jenkins is here the best sort of guide to some of Europe’s greatest buildings and their settings: well-informed, elegantly opinionated and passionate” Diarmaid MacCulloch, author of Christianity: The First Three Thousand Years
__________________________

Europe’s cathedrals are magnificent. They outstrip palaces and castles. They are the most sensational group of structures anywhere in the world - which everyone should ‘see before they die’. They are also hugely popular, most of them absolutely packed. They are humankind’s greatest creations.

In Europe’s 100 Best Cathedrals , Simon Jenkins has travelled the continent - from Chartres to York, Cologne to Florence, Toledo to Moscow and Stockholm to Seville - to illuminate old favourites and highlight new discoveries. Beautifully illustrated with colour photographs throughout, this joyous exploration of Europe’s history tells the stories behind these wonders, showing the cathedral’s central role in the European imagination. Readers will be inspired to make their own pilgrimage to all one hundred of them.
