Description

A guided tour of Britain's spiritual heritage Did Joseph of Arimathea really bring the holy grail to Glastonbury? Why do many conspicracy theorists believe architects such as Wren and Hawksmoore secretly built London according to principles from the Old Testament?

All these intriguing questions, and many more, are answered in Ed Glinert's unusual and fascinating new book. Glinert travels round Britain unearthing the most interesting spiritual characters and stories from over 2,000 years of British history. From martyrs to mystics, millenialists to malingerers, and 'messiahs' magicians magicians, Britain's turbulent religious history has thrown up a wealth of intriguing characters.
