In this comprehensive survey of London's Catholic churches, Dr Evinson's inventory lists all 140 churches in the cities of London, Westminster and the inner surrounding boroughs. In each case the entries include the foundation of the mission, the building history of the church, the role of the clergy and lay patrons, an architectural description and an account of the church's permanent furnishings. A substantial introduction treats the subject in chronological terms, embracing the period of Catholic emancipation followed by the Gothic, Classical, Byzantine and Romanesque revivals. Post-1945 developments in structure and planning are also explored, followed by a survey of furnishings and artists. This book should appeal to Catholic Londoners and parish priests, as well as art historians and tourists.
