The space in which Christian worship takes place is influenced by the culture of the age and place as well as ecclesiology.
This module will investigate church buildings and their art in significant historical periods to highlight the way each artefact is the result of a confluence of variables. The theoretical notion of ‘sacred space’ will be explored and students will be encouraged to reflect upon the use of liturgical space in specific contexts. There will be a guided tour of the architectural features of a church (e.g. Salisbury Cathedral).
Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor. Click the link for additional information regarding auditing modules.
