  • Dear Patrick, thanks for watching my presentation and for the comment. However I can not agree with your words that art will shaped our lives and relationships man with God. Art, particularly sacral, acts as a facilitator, a servant. Often happens that the art form is like overgrown placenta, which displaces the fetus. This has been true in the past and more and more often now. Fortunately, continues to build the beautiful temples, some of them I showed in the presentation
    Patrick greet you and wish you a great weekend - Anna

The church architecture (2)

  1. 1. Sacral <br />interiors<br />
  2. 2. Churches are different. Some are of great masterpieces of art, in which ... people do not can to pray. However, there are of sacral interiors , which literally threw on your knees. How difficult to find just such and not everyone is able to feel it in this way. The soul must be spiritually prepared for this, to the sacrum kidnapped her, and led to God. Is it worth to apply for such interior?<br />In the 'Letter to the Artists' John Paul II wrote:<br />The Church needs art to preach the message that Christ entrusted to its.Because It has to make, to the reality of the spiritual, invisible, of God, became noticeable, and even as far as possible attractive.<br />Jacques Maritain describes the reality of God with those words:<br />God is beautiful. He is the most beautiful from all beings, His loveliness is not variable, does not increase or decrease; God is beautiful of Itself and for Himself , He is beautiful in absolutely way. So the beauty belongs to the order of the transcendental and metaphysical. Therefore, it tends to raise of the soul itself over what is created.<br />You can replace the four essential characteristics, these are the virtues, which should have the interior of the church: distinctness, veracity,simplicity and functionality.<br />Which, from shown below of temples, meet these conditions, which "throw down to your knees?

  6. 6. The Cathedral of Christ Light<br />As its name suggests, <br />the Cathedral draws on <br />the tradition of light as a sacred phenomenon. Through its <br />poetic introduction, indirect daylight ennobles modest materials—primarily wood, glass, and concrete. <br />With the exception of evening activities, the Cathedral is lit entirely by daylight to create an extraordinary level of luminosity.<br />
  7. 7. Icons of Architecture: a rock of concrete and glass<br />In the '60s was erected surprising sacred building , it is like concrete monolith. <br />It is a pilgrimage church NevigeserWallfahrtsdomnear Cologne, the project of Gottfried Böhm.<br />

  19. 19.
