Another Fifty Catholic Churches to See Before You Die, by Elena Curti

SKU GW-9780852449998

Hard on the heels of Elena Curti's popular first volume exploring the architectural wonders of the Catholic Church comes a second selection that is every bit as exciting. This time thirteen cathedrals are among the fifty churches highlighted in this beautifully-illustrated guide. Each entry includes other fascinating buildings in the area that are 'worth a detour'. The variety and ingenuity of this precious heritage cannot fail to impress: from the Byzantine splendour of Westminster Cathedral to the daring modernism of the mother church of the Archdiocese of Liverpool. There are humble places where martyrs celebrated Mass in penal times and classical churches served by the first priests trained in England after the Reformation. In the wilds of North Yorkshire a modern grand design gives glory to God. Every entry a testament to the fervour and courage of old Catholic families, Victorian converts, poor Irish migrants, and priests who drove ambitious building projects against the odds.
