    1. 3 stars book raised to 4 stars rating thanks to the splendid photographs and artwork illustrations.


    2. This book is a rich feast not to be taken in at one sitting The gorgeous full page photo of the Chi Rho page from the Book of Kells is the icing on the cake and almost like seeing the real thing.


    3. This is a massive book, with heavy pages, loaded with incredible photographs of Catholic monasteries and their chapels and churches, spanning the last 2000 years As well, there is an overview of the most well known of the religious orders and their founders, and even photographs of some contemporary hermits I looked at interiors and exteriors of places I d heard of but not seen, and places I d never heard of.
