The first comprehensive book on the art and architecture of the Anglican (Episcopal) Church, will serve to many as an eye-opener that will dazzle and excite the senses and the mind. The Anglican Church has some of the greatest works of religious art in the world, but these treasures have not been widely publicized. Much of it is hidden away in nooks and crannies of small churches across the globe. With the tenacity of detectives, Simpson and Eatman have uncovered and present to us here a treasury of startlingly beautiful work.

A Treasury of Anglican Art features eight centuries of exquisite art and architecture, glorious works fashioned from the finest materials available, resulting in delicate fabrics, fine stained glass, icons, illuminated manuscripts, metalwork, mosaics, paintings, sculpture, and works in wood. Masterpieces from such old masters as Rubens and Canaletto are represented; as are great works from more modern artists, such as John Singer Sargent, N.C. Wyeth, Graham Sutherland, Sir Basil Spence, Sir Jacob Epstein, Edward Burne-Jones, A.W.N. Pugin, L.C. Tiffany, H.H. Richardson, and Henry Moore.
