A new book on Durham Cathedral, entitled Durham Cathedral: History, Fabric and Culture, has just been published. It is edited by the Revd Prof. David Brown, a professor formerly at Durham University and now at the University of St Andrews, and features essays and contributions from more than thirty experts on subjects. The work offers a comprehensive account of the cathedral’s 900-year history and covers subjects such as the founding, development, building, and decoration of the cathedral, including its stained glass; liturgy and music; and learning and book collecting. It features 400 archival and new photographs, and serves as a celebration of Durham Cathedral’s enormous historical, spiritual, cultural, and architectural significance.

The book is available online from the publisher at or from Amazon.
