This guide by architectural historian Richard Hall has been produced in partnership with the Christians in Parliament APPG and Bible Society. Following Parliament’s official ‘line of route’ for visitors, it highlights the profound influence of the Christian faith on the history of our parliamentary democracy, as told by the art and architecture of the Houses of Parliament.
‘With its chapels, paintings, statues and inscriptions, Parliament is a veritable treasure trove of our Christian heritage. Yet, many of these references to our historic religion are subtle, part of Parliament’s cultural traditions and not always realised – which is why Richard Hall’s guide opens our eyes to the role of faith at the heart of our democracy.’ The Rt Hon Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP, Speaker of the House of Commons
