Black & white photo illustrated. "This is the most comprehensive guide ever published to the churches of Dublin. It deals in words and pictures with over 150 places of worship of all denominations ranging in importance from the three cathedrals through the architecturally and historically important parish churches of the inner city and on to the most important of the suburban churches. There is at least one photograph of every church together with an accompanying text on the facing page. The churches range from St. Douglah's, Balgriffin which has been used continuously as a place of worship since it was built in the eighth century up to some of the outstanding examples of church architecture in the last twenty years. Dublin Churches is for the general reader rather than for the specialist student of ecclesiastical architecture, and the text reflects this. It concentrates on the historical background to the churches, the circumstances of their building and their social literary connections over the years."Binding: Hard Back
