Parish Churches series on CD-ROM

CD-ROMs, produced by Phillip Lindley (History of Art) and Alex Moseley
(Faculty of Arts), has recently been released.
The CD forms
the first volume in a projected series of CD-ROMs on English parish churches
and their craftsmanship, based around a collection of photographs taken by Dr
Donna Chaproniere since the early 1950s and donated by her in 1993 to the
History of Art Department.
photographs (upwards of 1,500 on this volume) reflect directly Dr
Chaproniere’s own interests and range from general views of churches in the
landscape, to exteriors and interiors of churches, details of roofs, benchends,
fonts, pulpits, screens, monuments and stained glass. They cover both medieval
and post-medieval works and show the enormous range of objects, styles and
media to be found inside and outside English parish churches.
photograph is accompanied by an explanatory caption, making the collection an
instructive and fascinating visual resource for the general public and local
historians alike. Photographs can be viewed by location, through a number of
geographical tours, and via a map; a limited search facility is also provided.
A comprehensive architectural and art historical glossary is incorporated.
development team including graduates from the History of Art Department, the
CD-ROM represents the first major electronic publication from the Faculty of
Arts, and will prove an invaluable resource for those who are interested in
