About this book

Britain's Holiest Places examines more than 500 evocative sites, going beyond the history to see how people are starting to use them again today. Every location is described in a way that allows modern visitors to interact with the past. Much of it would greatly surprise modern understanding of spiritual experience in general and Christian attitudes in particular. From naked medieval nuns to miraculously bleeding trees, from the first holy emperor to some of the world's oldest Christian artworks - Britain is packed with an unlikely and fascinating heritage of faith. Britain's Holiest Places surveys the entirety of 2,000 years of British Christian history, through the places and people that make it happen. It is enlightening, invigorating and controversial. At times its stories are painful and shocking, others uplifting and enlightening i? but always unexpected. The book is written by Nick Mayhew Smith, author of three nude beach guides and a lay minister in the Church of England.
