When the Jesuits built their Church of the Immaculate Conception in Mayfair in the 1840s, Catholic worship was still a controversial topic in England, so the modest façade on a quiet side street gave little idea of the splendour within. This handsome book charts for the first time the heritage of a pioneering church that drew such eminent converts as Evelyn Waugh and Edith Sitwell, while commissioned photographs illustrate its magnificent decoration.
