9780945454236: The Hermeneutics of Sacred Architecture: Experience, Interpretation, Comparison, Volume 2: Hermeneutical Calisthenics: A Morphology of Ritual-Architectural Priorities

The two volumes of this investigation into how we perceive sacred architecture propose an original interpretation of built environments as ritual-architectural events.

Exploring the world's cultures and religious traditions, Volume One maps out patterned responses to sacred architecture according to the human experience, mechanism, interpretation, and comparison of architecture. Volume Two, an exercise in comparative morphology, offers a comprehensive framework of ritual-architectural priorities by looking at architecture as orientation, as commemoration, and as ritual context.

A bold, innovative work ... far and away the most sophisticated exposition of sacred architecture that I have been fortunate enough to encounter.
--Paul Wheatley, University of Chicago, Emeritus

The Hermeneutics of Sacred Architecture presents an innovative and expansive vision of creativity of built forms. This is a courageous, elegant, and groundbreaking work.
