Hawksmoor's London Churches: Architecture and Theology

Front Cover
University of Chicago Press, Jun 15, 2000 - Art - 200 pages
Six remarkable churches built by Nicholas Hawksmoor from 1712 to 1731 still stand in London. In this book, architectural historian Pierre de la Ruffinière du Prey examines these designs as a coherent whole—a single masterpiece reflecting both Hawksmoor's design principles and his desire to reconnect, architecturally, with the "purest days of Christianity."
