-Publisher

This exquisite volume celebrates an ancient, diverse, widespread and deeply-rooted cultural phenomenon: the religious associations of plants and flowers. Packed with hundreds of stories, examples and illustrations, Flora Sancta explores the rich diversity of flower symbolism in religious art, in the building and decoration of churches, in stained glass, woodcarving, embroidery, in hymns and spiritual writing, in the flower customs we use to mark rites of passage and to celebrate the seasons and festivals of the Christian year. Flora Sancta also demonstrates how the language of faith was transferred to the natural world in a vivid two-way trafficking, and reveals the religious meaning behind the common names by which we know many wildflowers and garden favourites. Including many examples of where flower emblems and associations can be seen today and growing hints for all species mentioned, this will give lifelong pleasure to gardeners everywhere.
