St Paul's history 604-2004

St Paul's image

 This project produced a comprehensive new history of St Paul's Cathedral, published in celebration of its 1400th anniversary in 2004. With over 40 authors, dealing with all aspects of the cathedral's life, fabric and setting, the new history strikes a balance between continuous narrative and more detailed discussions revealing the current state of knowledge and research. Although not the premier cathedral of England, St Paul's is undoubtedly the most distinctive, and among the most important themes to be explored throughout the history is the relationship between the cathedral, the metropolis and the state. The volume develops many of its arguments through illustrations as well as text.
