Paulist Press, 2003 - 246 ページ
Churches and cathedrals were originally built to be read. They are alive with images and symbols--"all of which are packed with meaning. But today few people, from regular visitors to tourists, truly understand the wealth of meaning in what they find there. How to Read a Church is must reading for anybody who wants to know more about what they see in a church or cathedral. It explores the principal features of churches and what each represents. It also explains: In addition to exploring these brick-and-mortar motifs, the author also reveals fascinating and unexpected details such as how to 'read' the priest and the congregation, and he shows the varied ways that church architecture and appointments reflect the Christian year. From major themes to small but vital details, How to Read a Church will serve as a fascinating guide to the history, meanings, and messages of these beautiful buildings and the treasures they contain.

Intersting book, well written and a good introduction to Christen church imagery. However, I would have like it to have gone into more detail. I'll be looking for something with more depth. レビュー全文を読む

Do not believe that this is the same edition, as mine is the "Pocket Guide". Has some interesting information, and is a good "refresher", but I find it very lacking in depth and not particularly useful as a reference. Perhaps need to look for this, full edition. ** for the Pocket Guide. レビュー全文を読む
