Exeter Cathedral : The First Thousand Years, 1400-1550 Paperback


There has been a church on the site of Exeter Cathedral since Roman times.

This is the story of its first thousand years, when three successive cathedrals were built, including the present one.

In twelve chapters, the author takes us back to the past to see why the cathedral is like it is, and what went on there.

We explore its origins; its surroundings and buildings; its wealth, clergy, and people; its workings from day to day and throughout the year; and how it changed at the time of the Reformation.

This is a fascinating piece of religious and social history, written for the general reader and illustrated with maps, reconstructions, and photographs.
