Some brief overview of book

-Uniquely important array of English medieval church paintings -Specially commissioned new photography does full justice to the paintings -Written by art historian Michael Michael Many medieval churches were plastered and painted, generally with decorative patterns that emphasized the architecture, sometimes also with figures. St Albans in Hertfordshire is unique in possessing both much of its original scheme of masonry patterns and a sequence of figure subjects, ranging in date from the thirteenth century to the Tudor period. The choice of subject matter casts a fascinating light on the medieval world-view and ways of worship, while stylistic analysis places the paintings at the forefront of contemporary English art.

Written by acknowledged expert Michael Michael, St Albans Cathedral Wall Paintings is fully illustrated with specially commissioned new photography of the paintings, together with an informative array of comparative illustrations.
