Muthesius’s book on English church architecture in the last thirty years of the nineteenth century is the best contemporary study of the subject in any language. It provides suitable coverage of the work of such major church architects as Pearson, Bodley & Garner, James Brooks and J.D.Sedding, and Muthesius also discusses at length the churches and chapels of the various Protestant Nonconformist denominations.
