Historical Research into Ecclesiastical Architecture


In 1963, I presented as a thesis some research into the Sanctuary and its furnishings from Early Christian Times for the degree of MA (Architecture). Then in 1972, I presented as a thesis research into the Roman Catholic churches of the West Riding of Yorkshire for my Doctoral degree.


After many years concentrating solely on building contracts, disputes etc, I am again continuing my study of Sanctuaries which I find so engrossing. On the basis that research is of no value unless shared, I have digitised my theses and they are available by following the links to the right of this page.


I welcome emails on this topic, whether drawing my attention to new material or errors. I cannot currently engage in lengthy correspondence, but all communications will be answered.
