England's parish churches have been much studied as both art and architecture, but seldom as components of the communities of which they are part. This book discusses the influence society has had on churches throughout history.
CHURCHES IN THE LANDSCAPE sets out to discover why churches occupy the sites they do, and why and how these places were selected. England's parish churches have been much studied as art and architecture, but seldom as components of the communities in which they stand. We are shown the splendours of the parish church in the high Middle Ages as well as the later effects of economic change and the Reformation. Richard Morris examines the ways in which religous non-conformity, changing patterns of settlement, and the great social upheaval of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries have brought about changes in function and style.
