Unlocking the Church

The lost secrets of Victorian sacred space

William Whyte

  • Using a remarkable range of sources and deploying the very latest research, Unlocking the Church explores a forgotten revolution in social and architectural history and the history of the Church.
  • Scholarly yet accessible, Unlocking the Church is an essential read for anyone with an interest in church architecture or religion--past, present and future.
  • Uses some of the most recent approaches to the subject, Unlocking the Church offers new ways of thinking about church buildings--as theological texts and as engines of emotion.
  • Takes the story up to the present day and poses the question of how we should treat these buildings now.
