This book explains and celebrates the richness of English
churches and cathedrals, which have a major place in
medieval architecture. The English Gothic style developed
somewhat later than in France, but rapidly developed its
own architectural and ornamental codes.
The author, John Shannon Hendrix, classifies English
Gothic architecture in four principal stages: the early
English Gothic, the decorated, the curvilinear, and the
perpendicular Gothic. Several photographs of these
architectural testimonies allow us to understand the whole
originality of Britain during the Gothic era: in Canterbury,
Wells, Lincoln, York, and Salisbury. The English Gothic
architecture is a poetic one, speaking both to the senses
and spirit.
