The History & Rituals of Church Architecture
Thursday, February 18, 2016 7:00 PM
MacLaurinCSF Study Center, 1337 N. Cleveland Avenue, St. Paul
Have you ever wondered why our churches look the way they do? Do they reflect whims of architectural fashion or might they reflect rituals, culture and worship styles from the ages? How might Moses, King David, Jesus, Constantine, Charlemagne, Luther, Gutenberg, Da Vinci, Pope Saint John XXIII, and Frank Lloyd Wright have affected church design? How has church design been influenced by Rome, the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Reformation / Counter Reformation, Shakers, the Great Awakening, Vatican II, and television?
Join us for an evening lecture led by Paul May on the origins and development of church architecture as well as the insights into church design from its Hebraic roots to our contemporary structures. This event is cosponsored by MacLaurinCSF. Coffee and dessert will be provided. Free and open to the public.
