With meticulous research and carefully chosen illustrations,
Phoebe Stanton here explores the influence of the English Gothic
revival on American church architecture in the mid-nineteenth
century, arguing that this fundamentally conservative movement
provided a foundation for a new aesthetic. Examining the writings
of the movement's leading proponents as well as a variety of
important buildings, Stanton offers a comprehensive survey of the
architectural principles and models that became most influential in
America. She also confirms the importance of the Cambridge Camden
Society, which provided the theoretical atmosphere and practical
examples that helped to establish new standards of excellence in
