Editorial Reviews


A major strength of the volume is the number and quality of its illustrations, which both aid the reader in his or her understanding of the text and make available a range of antiquarian material never before published. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEWCharged full of absorbing detail, resulting from the considerable standard of scholarship with which each author enriches the whole. (...) A declared objective for this publication was to fill the perceived gap in scholarly attention paid to this iconic London church. This has been achieved in full measure, and it is also an important statement of current scholarship in the field of medieval monuments. CHURCH MONUMENTS(A) remarkable and well-produced collection. (...) It is impossible in a short review to do justice to the book's riches, but one can confidently say that every reader of Ecclesiology Today will find something to interest, inform or challenge here. ECCLESIOLOGY TODAYProbably the most important publication about Temple Church in recent years. (...) From an architectural and art-historical point of view this is an important scholarly publication. MEDIEVAL ARCHAEOLOGYThe diverse and complementary essays of this well-illustrated book represent a considerable achievement in raising from obscurity the history of this remarkable building. THE BURLINGTON MAGAZINEA marvellously thorough treatment of almost every aspect of the history of the Temple church. It is revisionist and it is historiographic, and it is well supported by over a hundred black-and-white plates, as well as twelve colour plates; it generally deserves the highest praise. (...) The richness of the Temple church's history has never lacked for investigators - but none have been so thorough as those in the present volume. THE RICARDIAN This fine and well-illustrated volume covers all these developments in great detail; it is a tribute to the energy and scholarship of the Master of the Temple, Robin Griffith-Jones, and his fellow editor, David Park. TLSThese scholarly conference proceedings discuss the church's design, functions and complex structural history, and also the famous but sadly battered group of 13th century military effigies which lies within. Fascinating detail too on the Templars' lifestyle, liturgy, and banking and legal services. BRITISH ARCHAEOLOGYA splendid new book. CHRISTOPHER HOWSE, DAILY TELEGRAPHSerious students and tourist guides must buy this book. THE FRIENDS OF CITY CHURCHES NEWSLETTER
