The Secret Language of Sacred Spaces: religious architecture of the world
November 15, 2018 @ 7:30 pm
The Arts Society Hamburg is presenting its November lecture in St Thomas Becket Church as
a fund-raising event in aid of the church.
From Chartres Cathedral to Angkor Wat, religion has been the inspiration for many of the
greatest buildings of the world. This lecture explores the architecture of the major religions
of humanity. It lays out the resulting developments in chronological order and shows how the
beliefs of each faith helped to shape its architecture and went on to be explored by designers
