Sacred Space and Sacred Architecture

This talk was given at the 2015 Sacred Liturgy Conference in Portland Oregon. The conference was sponsored by Schola Cantus Angelorum.

I find the talk fairly rudimentary, but it does cover the basic ideas of proper sacred architecture and how it is linked to the spirit of the Liturgy. However, I think this could go a lot deeper into the reasons and arguments for traditional sacred architecture and art. But I don’t know the audience, and maybe this was a proper introduction for them.

Also, as I find these kinds of lectures on the internet, and as I read books on the subject, I find a lot of the same handful of churches and key people mentioned. It’s as if you’ve read a couple of the books on the subject, or seen a couple of the lectures, you don’t need to look further. But I sense we are only scratching the surface.
