Book Description
This delightful book is the first narrative history of the English country church from its origins in Anglo-Saxon times to its uncertain future in the twenty-first century. From the arrival of missionaries from Ireland and Rome, who erected crosses in the country to mark the places where they preached, to the beautiful architecture and rich spirituality of medieval Catholicism; which replaced the splendour of ritual with the preaching of the Word, to the age of the `squarson`, the gentrified cleric we meet in the novels of Jane Austen: Roy Strong takes on a journey - historical, social and spiritual - to explore what men and women experience through the ages when they went to church on Sunday.
