Canterbury Cathedral is both the mother church of the Anglican communion and the pinnacle of English Gothic, yet the iconoclastic ravages of the Reformation were followed by a century of neglect in the Georgian era. With more than 50 illustrations, including a striking colour section, this absorbing study charts the efforts of the Victorian architect William Butterfield, along with the artists and clergy who shared his vision, to restore the cathedral to its former glory.
