    For more than two centuries, Catholic worship was illegal in England and the building of Catholic churches was forbidden. This landmark survey examines the many new churches built after the Catholic Relief Act of 1791. It presents magnificent colour illustrations and accompanying descriptions of buildings ranging from the neo-Renaissance splendour of St Charles Borromeo in Hull to the Modernist cathedrals in Bristol and Liverpool, and sets this rich and varied architectural legacy in historical, social and cultural context.
