Palace of Westminster: Faith, Art and Architecture
Parliament is a treasure trove of ecclesiastical paintings, statues and inscriptions but their presence and significance is often overlooked. This guide uncovers that unique heritage with a virtual tour of the religious elements of the Houses of Parliament. From tile designs to mosaics, from frescos and statues of the saints to prayer cards and Biblical inscriptions, Christian iconography and symbolism underpins the visual culture of the Parliamentary Estate. This guidebook offers a new perspective for the visitor, and encourages a deeper understanding of the religious legacy that underpins UK Parliament.
