Summary
"From St. Peter's Basilica in Rome to Notre-Dame in Paris, Christian churches represent some of our most significant architectural achievements, designed to evoke wonder and awe. In a breathtaking visual to evoke wonder and awe. In a breathtaking visual tour through some of the world's most revered religious landmarks, this volume reveals original views of architectural icons, such as Basilica de la Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, while also shedding light on lesser-known sacred spaces, such as Heddal Stave Church, the largest of Norway's beautiful wooden churches. Guillaume de Laubier offers unprecedented access to the most stunning spiritual sites, with more than 200 photographs that showcase dramatic soaring ceilings, majestic facades, and towering spires, alongside intricate decorative details. With this insightful text and detailed captions, Jacques Bosser delves into the stories of the design, construction, evolution, and resilience of these churches, which often span centuries and feature a fascinating cast of historical figures. Whether Catholic, Protestant, or Orthodox made of wood, stone, concrete, or glass; Roman, Gothic, Baroque, or modern, the places of worship featured in [this book] present a unique and vibrant portrait of our architectural, cultural, and spiritual history."-- Jacket
