About the Author

Keith Miller is a journalist, reviewer, and lecturer living in London.


This scholarly and fascinating book unravels the complex story of the most famous church in the world. -- Clover Stroud Sunday Telegraph 20070415 Keith Miller's study of the great baroque basilica offers a stimulating perambulation around this vast expanse of sacred space in the company of a sophisticated guide...Keith Miller's St Peter's joins other outstanding titles in [the] Wonders of the World series, fast becoming something of a wonder itself, with its elegant design, its scholarly enthusiasm, and its respect for the general reader. Like the best guides, it makes one long to visit the place in question, armed with book in hand. -- Mark Bostridge The Independent 20070429 A finely produced and stylishly written study of 'the greatest church in the world.' Miller's response to the basilica's unparalleled architectural opulence is poised between wonder and wry irreverence at the counter Reformation intensity of it all. -- Theo Hobson Sunday Times 20070429 The most enjoyable book [of the year] was St. Peter's by Keith Miller, a witty and entertaining account of the most famous church in the world, still standing firm against the tides of tourism that swirl around it. As Miller makes clear, St Peter's has always been far more than a church. -- J. G. Ballard The Observer 20071125
