Detail /// /// The volume ‘The Heritage of Religious Architecture and Art in Riga’ continues the Neputns series on Latvia’s cultural heritage that began with the book ‘The Heritage of Religious Architecture and Art in Daugavpils District’ (R. Kaminska and A. Bistere, 2006). This series of books provides an overview of the building history and trends of development of the places of worship of all the religious denominations in Latvia. Each volume is devoted to a particular region or city and is intended for a wide readership. This book, on the religious heritage of Riga, brings together descriptions of 60 places of worship, monasteries and complexes of such buildings in Riga. The text is supplemented with graphic material (plans, designs and survey drawings relating to churches, historical images, photographs of works of religious art, etc.). The sites are arranged in accordance with the administrative division of the city (the districts of Riga) and the chronological order of construction.
