The Cathedral is one of England's most important medieval buildings, a fact which its dramatic later history has helped to obscure. This volume discusses the history of Lichfield from the Roman period to the late nineteenth century; it casts new light on its archaeology and development, places some of the principle building campaigns in their wider national setting and considers the ways in which later architects sought to interpret and repair the fabric of the Cathedral. It also brings into focus the local context and in so doing examines important buildings with which few students of medieval studies and architectural history will be familiar.

The British Archaeological Association's 2007 conference celebrated the material culture of medieval Coventry, the fourth wealthiest English city of the later middle ages. The nineteen papers collected in this volume set out to remedy the relative neglect in modern scholarship of the city's art, architecture and archaeology, as well as to encompass recent research on monuments in the vicinity. The scene is set by two papers on archaeological excavations in the historic city centre, especially since the 1970s, and a paper investigating the relationships between Coventry's building boom and economic conditions in the city in the later middle ages. Three papers on the Cathedral Priory of St Mary bring together new insights into the Romanesque cathedral church, the monastic buildings and the post-Dissolution history of the precinct, derived mainly from the results of the Phoenix Initiative excavations (19992003). Three more papers provide new architectural histories of the spectacular former parish church of St Michael, the fine Guildhall of St Mary and the remarkable surviving west range of the Coventry Charterhouse. The high-quality monumental art of the later medieval city is represented by papers on wall-painting (featuring the recently conserved Doom in Holy Trinity church), on the little-known Crucifixion mural at the Charterhouse, and on a reassessment of the working practices of the famous master-glazier, John Thornton. Two papers on a guild seal and on the glazing at Stanford on Avon parish church consider the evidence for Coventry as a regional workshop centre for high quality metalwork and glass-painting. Beyond the city, three papers deal with the development of Combe Abbey from Cistercian monastery to country house, with the Beauchamp family's hermitage at Guy's Cliffe, and with a newly identified stonemasons' workshop in the 'barn' at Kenilworth Abbey. Two further papers concern the architectural patronage of the earls and dukes of Lancaster in the 14th century at Kenilworth Castle and in the Newarke at Leicester Castle.

This handsome two-part set is the first fully illustrated study of one of the most substantial collections of medieval stained glass in England. The glass from the east end of Wells Cathedral (rebuilt by a thriving clerical community between 1320 and 1340) includes the five brilliantlycoloured windows of the choir clerestory, with its seven-light Jesse east window, and glass from the famous polygonal Lady Chapel. There are also remains from the Chapter House, Library, Vicars' Close and the houses of the cathedral Chapter members.Besides describing and illustrating each panel, the volume has introductions to each part of the building or cathedral complex. These sections reconstruct what is known of the original glazing and its history, set it within the history of the buildings, their uses and issues of patronage, and revealmany new discoveries. An introduction places the findings within the wider context of recent international stained glass studies and late medieval art history.

The wealth of St. Andrew's diocese, the richest in medieval Scotland, was reflected in its ecclesiastical art and architecture. Religious changes in the sixteenth century led to the ruin of the cathedral and monastic houses and to the stripping of churches. Much important, although often fragmentary, architecture still remains; and there are significant if tantalising survivals of the furnishings. This volume consists of papers on the history of the medieval diocese, on the cult of St Andrew, on the eleventh to thirteenth century churches of St Andrews, Dunfermline and Arbroath as well as on facades and piers and distinctively Scottish architecture of the later Middle Ages. Other papers deal with Romanesque sculpture, sixteenth-century woodwork, the metalwork of the university maces of St Andrews and an altarpiece by Hugo van der Goes and there are surveys of the surviving stained glass and floor tiles of the diocese.

Worcester Cathedral is one of the outstanding monuments of medieval England. This book, a revised and updated translation of the German edition (2000), is the first complete architectural history of the cathedral, covering all aspects of the building from the 11th to the 14th centuries, including the later restorations. The four phases of Worcester Cathedral's construction represent the successive stages of English medieval architecture. The Norman cathedral, begun in 1084 by the last Anglo-Saxon bishop of England, Wulfstan II, has, through the reconstruction of its large crypt and a wealth of archaeological evidence, been recognised as one of the first monuments of the Anglo-Saxon/Anglo-Norman overlap. The nave's late 12th-century west bays are famous for their transition between late Anglo-Norman and early Gothic architecture. The east arm, started in 1224, is a key building in the Early English style. Finally, the 14th-century nave is of special interest because it demonstrates the change from the Decorated to the Perpendicular style. In this authoritative book these phases of construction are set in their historical context, based on architectural and documentary evidence. Patrons, masons and finance are all discussed. The iconographical significance of the cathedral's rich sculptural embellishments, the functions and liturgical arrangements of the building (such as altars, shrines and Lady Chapels) and the veneration of Worcester saints Oswald and Wulfstan are explored. Worcester Cathedral is of national importance as the burial place of King John, whose son, Henry III, acted as patron of the new Worcester choir. An important contribution to the history of ecclesiastical buildings, this well illustrated book will also be of interest to any who have marvelled at the splendour of Worcester Cathedral architectural heritage.

With a Foreword by HRH The Prince of Wales. One of the best-known of English cathedrals, Salisbury's West Front is its most elaborate exterior feature yet has been neglected in recent studies of the fabric; a neglect splendidly corrected in this work of multiple authorship, which surveys the detailed history of the front over 750 years. It is founded upon five years of investigation, as part of a conservation programme, and it will be of great interest to those with an affection for the Cathedral and to the student of architecture. The book also makes a major contribution to the literature of cathedral repair and conservation.

"This volume explores one of the most creative periods in Central European history. At its core is the medieval city of Prague, which became the seat of the Luxembourg dynasty in the 14th century and was fashioned as the political and cultural capital of the Holy Roman Empire. That dramatic change in the fortunes of Prague and Bohemia - from Romanesque roots to Late Gothic heyday and the religious uncertainties of the Hussite era - is examined through fifteen essays written by scholars from Great Britain, the Czech Republic, Austria, Germany, Poland, Switzerland and the USA. An important place is given to the re-evaluation of Czech medieval heritage in the 19th century, much of it shaped by Josef Mocker's tireless and often controversial campaign to restore and document Gothic monuments. The volume offers important new insights into key buildings such as Prague Cathedral and Karlstein Castle. By bringing together their expertise in architecture, archaeology, painting, stained glass, manuscript illumination, textiles, sigillography and epigraphy, the authors also present a rich and complex picture of connections and influences stretching across the region from the small town of Kosice in the east, to major centres such as Vienna, Cracow and Nuremberg, as far as the royal seats of Paris and London at the western extremities of Europe. Much of that vibrant cultural exchange took place in the climate of economic prosperity that attracted itinerant artists and supported prolific workshops, but some of the most astonishing examples of it came about amidst intense dynastic rivalry and religious strife. This collection is also a lasting record of the British Archaeological Association's conference held in Prague in 2006, the first such meeting east of the Rhine in its long and distinguished history." --Book Jacket.
