Westminster Abbey - The Lady Chapel of Henry VII


Henry VII's Lady chapel at Westminster Abbey was arguably the last great architectural masterpiece of the Middle Ages with many of its components, such as its vaulted ceiling and glass screen windows, singled out for particular praise during the last 500 years. During the 1990s the chapel was restored providing an unprecedented opportunity for survey and analysis, resulting in this important collection of sixteen specialist contributions. The volume incorporates both archaeological and architectural surveys of the chapel and its elements supported by historical analyses of the chapel's design and construction, all complemented by high-quality plans, drawings and photographs. Subjects include: the monks, musicians and liturgy of the old Lady chapel, royal memorials, the function of Henry VII's chapel and its building history, surveys of the vaults and roofs, the 18th-century re-modelling of the chapel stalls, the stalls' carpentry, the chapel's sculpture, later monuments and earlier restorations.
