A Treatise On Chancel Screens and Rood Lofts
Augustus Welby Pugin
Introduced by Roderick O’Donnell
Published in 1851 this was Pugin's last book, it is his answer to those critics who questioned the need, and indeed the rationale for rood screens in the new Catholic Churches of the nineteenth century. Largely ignored at the time of publication, it has never been reprinted. Now available in a facsimile edition with a new introduction by the leading Pugin scholar Dr Roderick O’Donnell, making an important addition to the series of Pugin facsimiles already published by Gracewing.
