At the centre of this story is the Cathedral. Its construction in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries in the town of Hagenburg unites a vast array of unforgettable characters whose fortunes are inseperable from the shifting political factions and economic interests that are vying for supremacy. Around this narrative centre, Ben Hopkins has constructed his own monumental edifice: a novel that is rich with the vicissitudes of mercentalism,  politics, religion, and human enterprise.
