The Theological Reasoning Behind Traditional Church Architecture

Here is a great lecture on the fundamentals of why traditional Catholic churches are designed the way they are. The reasons are primarily theological, which should give us pause when we consider more modern styles.

Increasingly I am becoming convinced that the traditional styles are better — not only because they are “cool” and I like them and all that, but much more importantly because they speak to our human nature, they way God designed us, in a way that our modern culture has forgotten.
