Pugins and the Catholic Midlands

Roderick O'Donnell

O'Donnell shows how Pugin exercised a crucial influence on the direction that the Catholic Revival took in the Midlands - itself a key area for the restoration of Catholicism as a National Church in England - and this book provides a detailed account of his work there and the circle of friends and patrons in which he moved. It is a practical guide to the many buildings and interiors that remain to attest Pugin's genius, and that of his sons Edward Welby and Peter Paul Pugin. Over fifty churches, convents and colleges designed by the Pugins are included, splendidly illustrated in both contemporary and historic photographs, the latter are sadly a reminder of how much has been lost in recent times. Illustrated.
