Edward Norman The House of God: Church Architecture, Style and History

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The House of God: Church Architecture, Style and History The grandeur of St Peter's, the Baroque ecstasy of the churches at Cholula in Mexico, the intimate peace of Fairford Church in Gloucestershire... Throughout the world, amidst the increasing materialism of largely secular societies, churches attract travellers, tourists, historians and worshippers as almost never before. The reasons for this apparent paradox are not difficult to see, and they point to the widespread appeal of this spectacularly illustrated book. The clarity, knowledge and insight of Edward Norman's chronological survey are supported and enhanced by a brilliantly researched collection of illustrations and photographs. The result is a perfect mix between the most-loved master buildings - from Hagia Sophia to Tokyo Cathedral - and the freshness of the less familiar - a mission church in Paraguay, a Baroque shrine in Goa. And we see how every age has found its own way of expressing its particular vision, down to modern times, 'the great age of Christian expansion', when the initiative seems to be shifting away from Europe to South America and Africa. and art, has nowhere been more fluently and movingly conveyed.

Roman Catholicism in England from the Elizabethan Settlement to the Second Vatican Council, Out of the Depths: The Daily Telegraph Meditations, Secularisation, The House of God: Church Architecture, Style and History, Mercy of God's Humility, The English Catholic Church In The Nineteenth Century, An Anglican Catechism, Anglican Difficulties: A New Syllabus of Errors, The Roman Catholic Church: An Illustrated History, A History of Modern Ireland
Caused a storm when it was first published, but now, in the words of Archbishop David Hope, "should be seen as a refreshing statement which the Church is crying out for." An Anglican Catechism puts into the hands of anyone seeking to extend knowledge of the Church of England a definitive account of the teachings of the Church. Edward Norman has produced a statement of faith at a time when our understanding has been clouded by the prevalence of secular modes of thought., -, This is the first book in decades to study the ways in which English Catholics asserted their faith in the years following the Reformation, and how their assertion of faith forced them into the position of a rejected minority., The history of the Roman Catholic Church is the gateway to understanding 2000 years of Western & at times world civilization. Edward Norman's illustrated account begins with how Roman Catholics understand their faith, before telling the story of the multifarious ways in which their church has shaped their lives.
