Architecture Of Power by Robert Shaw

by: Watkins Books




The clash of beliefs that drove the City of London to seize the Crown and then the World.

In 1666, Londoners suffered fire, plague, famine and war. The official parliamentary report declared the great fire as arson. This book reveals the bitter clash between the Lion and the Unicorn, the City of London and the Crown, played out in the intrigue around the Great Fire of London and the strange esoteric design of architect Nicholas Hawksmoor's churches.
