The Secret Language of Churches & Cathedrals

Full Product Description

Thanks to books and films like "The Da Vinci Code" and its sequel, "Angels and Demons," interest in secret religious symbols has never been greater. This carefully researched guide takes the reader into some of the world's most famous churches, decoding messages that are hidden in plain sight-in stained-glass windows, statuary, patterned flooring, ornamentation, and even the buildings' architectural design: Why do fierce beasts and grotesque faces peer from the walls? Who chose to depict one particular saint and not another? What's the significance of an eagle? A dragon? A pelican? No one who reads this book will ever again experience a visit to a cathedral in quite the same way.

The Secret Language of Churches & Cathedrals by Richard Stemp was published by Watkins Media in July 2016. The ISBN for The Secret Language of Churches & Cathedrals is 9781780289618.
