A comprehensive guide to the astonishingly varied churches crowded into the square mile of Europe's financial centre, the City of London. The churches, some fifty in all, include many famous masterpieces by Sir Christopher Wren, the medieval St Helen Bishopsgate with its magnificent monuments, and the early Gothic Temple Church, besides England's one remaining eighteenth-century synagogue. Illustrated with numerous photographs, maps and plans, this is the indispensable guide and record of church architecture and parish life in the City.
