Quick Reference

The modern see, created in 1918, is roughly conterminous with Warwickshire. In Anglo‐Saxon and early Norman times the Mercian church had been centred on Lichfield, then on Chester, and eventually, after 1102, on Coventry abbey. In 1836 Coventry and its neighbourhood were put under Worcester, but the massive increase in population in the midlands necessitated the foundation of the Birmingham diocese in 1905 and Coventry in 1918. St Michael's parish church served as the cathedral, until it was destroyed by bombing in 1940. The new cathedral, designed by Basil Spence, is dominated by the great tapestry of Christ in Glory by Graham Sutherland.
