The classic guide to one of America's architectural treasuresnow with magnificent new color photos and a foreword by Princeton's dean of religious life

Like the medieval English cathedrals that inspired it, the Princeton University Chapel is an architectural achievement designed to evoke wonder, awe, and reflection. Richard Stillwell'sThe Chapel of Princeton University is the essential illustrated guide to this magnificent architectural and cultural landmark.

Now with new color photos throughout,The Chapel of Princeton University traces the history of the chapel and describes its architecture, sculpture, woodwork, and furnishings. Stillwell knew the building from its planning stages through its construction, dedication, and long use. In this book, he offers unique insights into the vision of architect Ralph Adams Cram and the artistry of Charles J. Connick, who designed the chapel's breathtaking cycle of stained-glass windows. Stillwell's thoroughly researched account of the glorious stone, wood, and glasswork gives readers and visitors an opportunity to enjoy the chapel as both an aesthetically beautiful structure and a moving religious statement. Stillwell reveals how the building's composition is meant to provide spiritual access to as many seekers as possible and instill in them an extraordinary message of hope.

Featuring a foreword by Alison Boden, Princeton's dean of religious life,The Chapel of Princeton University is a guided tour of an inspiring structure that has served as the spiritual home to one of America's leading universities.
