red end-papers; signed by the author on the title page; In 'Cambridgeshire: A History of Church and Parish' the renowned historian Professor Norman Pounds examines the development of the 150 parish churches in the county of Cambridgeshire. The book view the institution of the church 'from below', as an expression of the culture of everyday parishioners, rather than being concerned with high church politics. After exploring the relationship between parish and diocese, he describes what can be learned about the rectors and vicars who served. He discusses in detail the economic background within Cambridgeshire in order to explain why one parish has a larger church than another. In the latter part of the book, Prof. Pounds studies the ways in which the church building itself developed in terms of construction and cost, the building materials that were employed, and the furnishings that were used to decorate the church inside. The fabric of the churches, he argues. reflected the local popular culture and embodied the hopes and fears of the parishioners who built them. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 202 pages.
