Church of St. John the Evangelist, Bovey Tracey

This church was designed by R.C. Carpenter and built 1851-53.

The sculptured altar is flanked by Salviati mosaics of censing angels. Their censers proclaim Christ's death and allude to the consecration of bread into His body, since incense was burned both at funerals and during Mass.
