Overview

This volume looks at how the various types of basilicas and cathedrals have evolved throughout history and in varied geographical contexts. It covers everything from the Early Christian and Byzantine origins to the golden age of the Romanesque and Gothic, from the continuous reworkings of the Renaissance and Baroque eras up to the crystallization of Neo-Classical style, and on to the innovative verve of the 20th century, ending with the great contemporary masterpieces. This exciting journey through Christianity reveals some of its most important architectural creations, great symbols of faith and of the power of the Church that project powerfully over landscapes across the world.
