Synopsis

This is the first history of London’s faiths and beliefs. Gradually new forms of worship from beyond these islands came to influence the capital city, creating a vibrant multi-faith community today, with its first woman Bishop, and beautiful buildings for worship in a multitude of different ways.

Author's Bio

Philippa Bernard has lived almost all her life in London. She and her husband had for many years an antiquarian bookshop in Chelsea, a mecca for book collectors across the world. She has written several books on religious themes and a biography of the poet Kathleen Raine.
