The Story of the 'Domus Dei' of Portsmouth

Full Product Description

The 'Domus Dei', otherwise known as the Garrison Church, in Portsmouth is a familiar landmark to ships sailing into and out of Portsmouth Harbour. It was originally founded about 1210 as a 'hospital' for travellers - especially pilgrims - arriving at the port. After the Reformation its main building became a church, and was frequently used by naval and army personnel before embarkation. In 1814 the sovereigns and leaders of the Allies against Napoleon gathered there during the peace celebrations following his abdication, but by the middle of the century it had become dilapidated. A restoration project was begun in 1865, and this history of the building was published in 1873 by Henry P. Wright, 'chaplain to the Forces', with the intention of raising further donations towards the refurbishment, which he describes in detail. The church was severely damaged by bombing in 1941, but remains consecrated and is occasionally used for services.

The Story of the 'Domus Dei' of Portsmouth by Henry Press Wright was published by Cambridge Library Collection in February 2012. The ISBN for The Story of the 'Domus Dei' of Portsmouth is 9781108044622.
