Monuments and memory in early modern England

Monuments and memory in early modern England

Sherlock, Peter

Focusing on quality rather than quantity, this book traces the social and cultural meanings of monuments, both before and after their erection, and includes the much-neglected form of stained glass windows. The author, where possible, tells the story of each tomb, noting shape, situation and patronage how contemporaries responded to it
