Churches: How To Read Them presented by author Richard Taylor, examines how
the imagery, symbols and architecture of Britain’s Churches have inspired, moved
and enraged people down the centuries.
Richard believes that we’ve forgotten how to read the language of these buildings but that if we know how, we can connect directly with our ancestors’ deepest hopes and fears. He rejects the lazy clichés that reduce churches to little more than dusty museums, or to some sort of code for a "wannabe Dan Brown" to crack. Richard believes they’re much more than that.
The series is about understanding what we see in the churches of Britain – how their different styles reflect changing ideas of God, salvation, living and dying. Richard visits some of Britain’s finest churches, and the journey is touched with his insight, humour and sense of wonder at what he sees and interprets.
