Publisher's description: The old cathedral of St Michael became known throughout the world, ironically, as a result of its devastation in a World War Two air raid, in November 1940, and its subsequent resurrection as an intrinsic part of the inspiration for new Coventry Cathedral and a symbol of peace and reconciliation. Previously one of the largest parish churches in the country, elevated to cathedral status as late as 1918, it was a superb example of the fifteenth-century Gothic architectural style, with its magnificent tower and spire, and notable collection of medieval stained glass. This celebratory and richly illustrated volume is based on a conservation plan commissioned by the World Monuments Fund Britain, tracing the long history of the church and offering an architectural and artistic appreciation of what was constructed and what remains.
