Edward Norman's chronological survey of church buildings begins with the basilicas of Constantine's reign and traces developments in architectural style and decoration up to churches and cathedrals built in the 1960s (Toyko Cathedral and St Josef at Neuss-Weckhofen). Accompanied by an outstanding collection of illustrations and photographs, the text explores how changes in church style came to be adopted, mindful always that to study a church structure is 'to contemplate the material evidence of a reality which is invisibly present'.
