Augustus Pugin was Victorian England's greatest church architect, but some believe his best work survives in Tasmania. As a young man Augustus Pugin converted to Catholicism and was driven by the conviction that the Gothic architecture of the Middle Ages would inspire conversions and revive the Catholic Church. When his friend Robert Willson was appointed Hobart's first Bishop, Pugin provided everything he'd need to set up his new diocese, including designs for three sandstone churches, crosses, tombstones, chalice linens, altar cloths, holy oil and vestments. Many of these precious artefacts have survived and the churches are slowly being restored. On the 200th anniversary of Augustus Pugin's birth, Compass explores his extraordinary work and legacy in Tasmania.
