This book covered by Tim Ayers, covers the period from the reconnection with a Christian-Roman tradition in the seventh century to the traumatic break from Rome at the time of the Reformation.

Medieval Britain produced some of the world's most beautiful and significant objects and buildings, including the Lindisfarne Gospels, the Bayeux Tapestry and Durham Cathedral. Drawing upon the latest discoveries and research, leading scholars here unravel the complex stories behind the phenomenal artistic activity of the Middle Ages and into the Reformation across all media, including painting, sculpture, architecture, book illumination, frescoes, embroidery, printing, carving and stained glass.
