Westminster Cathedral, the principal Roman Catholic cathedral in Britain, is decorated in the Byzantine style with marble and mosaics. The marblework is effectively complete but the mosaic decoration will take many more years. With the help of almost ninety illustrations this book recounts the often eventful story of the Cathedral mosaics, which have been produced over a period of more than a hundred years by a variety of designers and mosaicists and in a variety of styles, and examines the ancient mosaics which influenced and inspired them. The mosaics include beautiful modern images, not just religious scenes and will be an inspiration to mosaic artists worldwide.
