Well done, but would have gladly paid for a larger format



This little primer helped me get ready for a month long trip to England I knew we would be visiting cathedrals and churches, and I really appreciated knowing in advance about the wonders of misericords and bench ends Beautiful photographs The wood carvings are sensuous and even fun when you know their history.
Although Misericords Were originally Installed On The Hidden Undersides Of Church Folding Seats To Provide Comfort To Those Standing For Long Periods Of Prayer, The Have Gradually Become Ornately Carved And Decorated Now They, Along With The Benches Installed In Parish Churches In The Later Middle Ages, Are The Objects Of A Large Proportion Of The Surviving Medieval Woodcarving In Britain The Subject Matter Of These Carvings Is Not Merely Concerned With Religion And Religious Symbolism This Book Outlines The History Of Church Seating, Considers The Status Of The Craftsmen And The Influences On Their Work, And Then Explains The Subject Matter Of The Carvings
