Norwich Cathedral Close - The Evolution of the English Cathedral Landscape by Roberta Gilchrist (Paperback)

Published 17th March 2016: Pre-Order your copy today

Although we've not yet seen a finished copy this looks like a substantial and important book for anyone with an interest in the history of this beautiful space. From the publisher's description:

What explains the layout of the cathedral and its close? What ideas and beliefs shaped this familiar landscape? Through this pioneering study of the development of the close of Norwich cathedral - one of the most important buildings in medieval England - from its foundation in 1096 up to c.1700, the author looks at changes in cathedral landscape, both sacred and social. Using evidence from history, archaeology and other disciplines, Professor Gilchrist reconstructs both the landscape and buildings of the close, and the transformations in their use and meaning over time. Much emphasis is placed on the layout and the ways in which buildings and spaces were used and perceived by different groups. Patterns observed at Norwich are then placed in the context of other cathedral priories, allowing a broader picture to emerge of the development of the English cathedral landscape over six centuries. Roberta Gilchrist is Professor of Archaeology and Research Dean at the University of Reading. She is a Fellow of the British Academy and held the post of Archaeologist to Norwich Cathedral for 12 years.

Review:

Given its complementary verbal and illustrative wealth as well as its historical, archival, archaeological, and architectural historical breadth, this is a consequential book that deserves to be broadly consulted. --Speculum

This excellent book is the most detailed treatment to date of such a landscape, packed with detail and new insights. --British Archaeology

A seminal work of scholarship: a vital reference for all future historians and archaeologists of this and other cathedral-priories. --The Church Times
