    “A book that seeks to offer timeless principles which are crucial for church architecture Stroik punctuates his book with numerous illustrations, worthy examples of churches spanning the length of Christian history.” —Amanda Clark, Catholic World Report. Devoted exclusively to issues of church architecture, Sacred Architecture is edited.

    The two volumes of this investigation into how we perceive sacred architecture propose an original interpretation of built environments as ritual-architectural events. Exploring the world's cultures and religious traditions, Volume One maps out patterned responses to sacred architecture according to the human experience, mechanism, interpretation, and comparison of architecture. In this book, a distinguished team of authors explores the way space, place, architecture, and ritual interact to construct sacred experience in the historical cultures of the eastern Mediterranean. Essays address fundamental issues and features that enable buildings to perform as spiritually transformative spaces in ancient Greek, Roman.
