The architectural and artistic detail is rich, but intelligible to the non-specialist reader... At a time when European travel remains frustrating, the book occasionally makes salivating reading... this is a useful addition to the bookshelves of anyone who cares about architecture, and prompts one to reach for one's passport as swiftly as possible -- Simon Heffer * The Daily Telegraph *
This attractive book will inspire you to do more cathedral-crawling -- Christopher Howse * Telegraph *
[T]his book fulfils a real need. Here are the masterpieces of western civilisation... Sir Simon does not pretend to be a scholar or a man of faith, but his passion for the subject is irresistible. After reading this book, those of all levels of understanding will be afire to go on architectural pilgrimage... No printed work could do more to evoke the wonders of these great buildings -- Clive Aslet * Country Life *
Simon Jenkins has provided a feast for both eyes and mind in this sumptuously illustrated guide to Europe's greatest cathedrals. His Introduction, and description of the history and architecture of each cathedral, bring the living reality of these works of art into sharp and vivid focus -- John Barton, author of A History of the Bible
