Decription:

The Bishop's Churches documents the churches established by Bishop Robert Gray, the first Bishop of Cape Town. He and his wife, Sophy, arrived in Cape Town in 1848 with a mission to increase the number of Anglican clergy represented in the British colonies of what was eventually to become South Africa, and to implement a church building programme. What the Bishop achieved was nothing short of remarkable; within 25 years he was instrumental in the erection of 50 churches, 40 of which were designed by Sophy. Accompanying the historical and architectural comment, Dr. Desmond Martin has illustrated 40 churches founded by Bishop Robert Gray and his wife using a combination of watercolours and line drawings. Whether you are interested in the history of the Church of the Province of Southern Africa, architecture or conservation in general, this book provides information on a hitherto neglected part of South Africa's cultural heritage.
