For almost two millennia, cathedrals have been among the most imposing, astonishing, and inspiring buildings in Europe. Regardless of faith, their scale and architectural daring has never ceased to spark wonder. This guide traces the development of the cathedral from its earliest beginnings as a Bishop’s house, through the Romanesque and Gothic periods, and up to the most extravagant contemporary designs around the world. In doing so, it sheds light on social, religious, and architectural history, as well as bringing the story of these extraordinary buildings to life.
Narrator Roy McMillan delivers this fascinating study of the great cathedrals of Europe with an authoritative tone and bell-like clarity. His pleasing accent, enunciation, and sublime rhythm make this performance extraordinary. McMillan uses his trained and professional voice to create a visual aspect to the work that brings these inspiring structures down to earth. He uses pauses between phrases and extra emphasis on others to make the story of these massive structures intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually engaging. Listening to this book would be essential before that next tour of the European cathedrals.
