Architektur als fleischgewordene Theologie
Have you ever wondered: Why do churches look the way they do? Is there any theological significance to their art, architecture and design? Can I evangelize through art and architecture? How do I recognize what’s true, good, and beautiful? Denis McNamara, Ph.D., Architectural History, worked with Fr. Robert Barron giving insight on the spiritual and historical significance of the important sites he visited while filming the Catholicism series. He is the author of Heavenly City: The Architectural Tradition of Catholic Chicago (2005), Catholic Church Architecture and the Spirit of the Liturgy (2009), How to Read Churches: A Crash Course in Ecclesiastical Architecture (2011).
For the New Evangelization Society he offered a crash course in how to read a church, so that we can know and explain the beautiful things we see and their significance and meaning to others. You will never see a church the same way again!
