Talks and Tours 2013

Here’s a list of this year’s talks and tours. The big news is the 9-dayer on English cathedrals for Martin Randall Travel; a series of residential tours and dayschools, and the publication of The Secret Language of Sacred Spaces (Duncan Baird Publishing), in the autumn. A sumptuously illustrated overview of the sacred buildings of the world, explaining their history and how they reflected the faith that shaped them.

    Busy man!!! Including a trip to Germany! Hope you can persuade someone they need a book on German cathedrals! Autumn 2013 suddenly does not seem so far away. I’m truly excited. Can I pre-order??? Another book next Spring and sounds like you’ve got another three in the pipeline:
    A thousand years of medieval cathedrals as time machines
    Monks and canons: daily life in the cathedral
    Sacred feminine: The English Lady Chapel
