Pugin’s global influence on church architecture and material reform The year 2012 marked the bicentenary of the gothic revival architect A.W.N. Pugin. His influence as a designer not only spread fast globally, but also played a leading part in the transformation of material culture from the mid-nineteenth century onwards. Pugin’s work has been comprehensively reevaluated over the last decade. In this volume sixteen leading scholars from across the globe discuss Pugin’s direct influence on church architecture and furnishing. Beautifully illustrated with a large selection of new photography, Gothic Revival Worldwide, the successor to the volume Gothic Revival published in 2000, reveals how Pugin’s ideas played a profound role in the changing face of material reform in church architecture as an expression of the evolving identity of the churches across the world from North America to Mongolia and the South Pacific.

Newark's Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart is one of the United States' greatest cathedrals and most exceptional Gothic Revival buildings. Rising from Newark's highest ground and visible for miles, it spectacularly evokes its historic models. Gothic Pride sets Sacred Heart in the context of American cathedral building and, blending diverse fields, accounts for the complex circumstances that produced it. Calling upon a wealth of primary sources, Brian Regan describes in a compelling narrative the cathedral's almost century-long history. He traces the project to its origins in the late 1850s and the great expectations held by the project's prime movers--all passionate about Gothic architecture and immensely proud of Newark--that never wavered despite numerous setbacks and challenges. Construction did not begin until 1898 and, when completed in 1954, the cathedral became New Jersey's largest church--and the most expensive Catholic church ever built in America. During Pope John Paul II's visit to the United States in 1995, he celebrated evening prayer at the Cathedral. On that occasion, the Cathedral of the Sacred Heart was elevated to a basilica to become the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart. Meticulously researched, Gothic Pride brings to life the people who built, contributed to, and worshipped in Sacred Heart, recalling such remarkable personalities as George Hobart Doane, Jeremiah O'Rourke, Gonippo Raggi, and Archbishop Thomas Walsh. In many ways, the cathedral's story is a lens that lets us look at the history of Newark itself--its rise as an industrial city and its urban culture in the nineteenth century; its transformation in the twentieth century; its immigrants and the profound effects of their cultures, especially their religion, on American life; and the power of architecture to serve as a symbol of community values and pride..

This guide brings us to the thrones of ancient kings, to the high, lonely haunts of peregrine and buzzard, to tumbledown castles and abbeys mellow and mouldering in their ivy shrouds. He shows us the Irish people embattled, in love, story-telling, worshipping, joking, starving, abandoning their country in despair. We meet pillaging Vikings, conquering Anglo-Normans, land-grabbing Tudors. We follow in the tracks of Joyce, Wilde, Parnell, Swift, De Valera, Tone, Cromwell, O'Connell, Wellington, Yeats, St Patrick - a motley cast-list of heroes and villains, historic and legendary.

Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812-1852) was one of the most influential architects and designers of the nineteenth century. This catalogue and the exhibition it accompanies establish Pugin as a figure of worldwide significance. He is little known in the United States, but his ideas and the styles he created are the basis for the Gothic Revival in America. This most characteristic and dynamic style to emerge in the nineteenth century became synonymous with the period as a whole. The objects in the exhibition reflect Pugin's pioneering diversity as a product designer and the modernity of his design principles. Ten essays and their illustrations have been prepared by scholars of international stature. They show the development of pre-Pugiman Gothic, underline the revolutionary nature of Pugin's role in the history of architecture and design, and reflect his status now as an international figure. A. W. N. Pugin: Master of Gothic Revival was held at The Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, New York, from November 9, 1995 to February 25, 1996.
