ST GEORGE’S CHAPEL Edited by Nigel Saul & Tim Tatton -Brown
St George’s Chapel, Windsor, is one of the most celebrated buildings in England, a magnificent place of worship, a masterpiece of medieval architecture, and a witness to the antiquity of the English monarchy. Drawing on the latest historical and architectural studies of the building, this book takes a fascinating new look at the Chapel. In a series of essays ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day, it examines the building of the Chapel, its ties with the Order of the Garter, its association with the cult of King Henry VI, its magnificent Tudor glass, the creation of its Library and Archives, its canons in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the restorations to its fabric, and the building of the chapel for King George VI. At the heart of these studies are the Archives of St George’s itself, a rich collection that makes the story of St George’s part of the history of the nation.
