The Churches of India


The churches of India takes the reader on a fascinating journey through India to discover the history and architecture of the country Christian churches. With fine illustrations and an informative, easy-to-read text The book reveals the diverse architectural styles that have evolved in different regions from the very beginnings of the common era identified with the birth of Christ. Churches have been built in greater numbers from the middle of the last millennium when settlers such as the Armenians and colonisers, Portuguese, French and British, brought their own branches of Christianity and religious architecture with them. Many churches were indigenised over time while others have retained their architecture in its pure form.Taylor's work gives the reader a deep feeling for the range of churches and their architecture, from the humble to the grand. It is also a fine history of the search by those who design or adapt buildings for a self-identity through the symbolism, explicit or implicit, expressed in built forms. Religious buildings give India its identity as a nation of diverse people with their own cultures. It is a country with one of the world’s richest architectural traditions. Complemented by over 300 photographs, this absorbing book is the most comprehensive work on India’s churches to date.
