This selection is a case where the whole is greater than its parts. At times I was tempted to give up - the technical aspects about building materials threatened to put me to sleep - but I am so glad I stuck with it. Having been raised Catholic, this history shed quite a bit of light on the flaws of many popes and helped to correct the impression of Martin Luther as "ultimate evil" that was taught by my biased grade school teachers (nuns.) The book has inspired me to do more reading and has given me quite a lot to think about.
A riveting history of a treasured landmark that endured years of destruction, design changes and religious conflict. After all of this descriptive history, one cannot accept the purity of religous belief, but only the strong determination of man's belief in the existance of a monument of achievement.
