Cambridge historian Paul Binski makes a journey through the history of religious art and architecture. Binski's story takes us from the Norman invasion of England and the building of the first great Romanesque cathedrals, through the great age of medieval religious art and the rise of Gothic architecture, to the Renaissance, Wren and beyond. But this is more than a history of Britain's religious art and architecture. It is an exploration of religious belief. And it is also a history of Britain. Because for Paul Binski, these elements are part of the same glorious story.
