Product Overview

This is the first substantial study of Georgian church architecture for over 40 years. It comprises an overview of major developments during this period, followed by six in-depth studies of important, though neglected, churches. These studies draw on contemporary records and reveal much about the designing and building of Anglican parish churches during the 18th century.
The book explores issues which go to the heart of the Georgian church, both as a building type and as a house of worship. For instance, the intimate links between design, materials and technology as revealed by bitter quarrels amongst disgruntled parish factions; craftsmen's building accounts; the thorny question of 'restoring' medieval fabrics; controversies over imagery in Protestant churches; secularising design through the use of architectural pattern books, and dramatic reinterpretations of ancient pagan forms for new churches.
