Christopher Somerville – Ships of Heaven book cover

Christopher Somerville walks across Britain to tell the stories of his favourite cathedrals including Sheffield’s own.

This is an illustrated voyage of discovery across the ages with stories of monarchs and bishops, the masons whose genius brought the cathedrals into being, the peasant labourers who erected (and died on) the scaffolding.

We learn of the towns that grew in their shadows, the impact of the Black Death, the Reformation, icon-smashing Puritanism, two world wars and more.

Part of Off the Shelf Festival.
