Landscapes of Faith: The Christian Heritage of the North East
Michael Sadgrove, Dean of Durham

For latest book news visit the book's dedicated microsite.

A special edition of a major new book to celebrate the visit of the Lindisfarne Gospels to Durham in summer 2013.

There are many books on the Christian history of the North East, particularly on such Northumbrian saints as Aidan, Cuthbert and Bede.

There are many others on the region’s culture and renowned natural scenery. What has been missing is a book that interprets the Christian heritage in a holistic way by ‘reading’ the churches, monasteries, Christian sites – together with the artefacts they inspired – in the light of both the regional history of Christianity and the landscapes that it shaped.

It is intended that this book, in celebration of Northumbria’s Christian Golden Age and the Christian world that followed it, will reveal the full canvas to its readership.

The book will draw on the diverse expertise of scholars from both within the North East and beyond. It will be richly illustrated, including much new photography, to supplement the treasures of the regional archives. Above all, it will pay tribute not only to the region’s heritage and beauty, but to the indispensible contribution the Christian presence and imagination has made in the fashioning of its culture, and of its history.

You can support Landscapes of Faith by pre-ordering your copy in advance of publication. All pre-orders will receive a 25% discount on the RRP.
