Excerpt from Church Building: A Study of the Principles of Architecture in Their Relation

So far as the art itself is concerned, its notable advance owes as little to the schools as did its earliest inception in the first half of the nineteenth century. To this day schools of architecture are generally as scornful both of the problem and its stylistic expression as they ever have been since official architectural schools came into existence. Whatever has been gained has been without their aid, and simply because, schools or no schools, there was a new spirit working in the world, a new demand that inevitably produced the corresponding supply. There is nothing self-conscious in the religious art of the time, nothing factitious or premeditated; it is working instinctively though slowly, and it is gradually reaching out through all classes and all denominations. Little by little it is acquiring coherency, and when once this synthesis is accomplished, it may be able to rise to its high possibilities and materially aid in the achievement of that same coherency and synthesis in the organic forms of the religion it serves, as in the natural forms, which are architecture and all the arts when called into this service.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Church Building: A Study of the Principles of Architecture in Their Relation The fact that a new printing of this volume is necessary would be evidence in a way that interest has not flagged during the last decade, either in churches or their construction, if evi dence were needed. Nothing of the kind is necessary, how ever, for the fact is patent to every one that concrete religion means more in the world to-day than it has meant for many generations, and that the interest in church building has ex tended far beyond the architectural profession and has now come to include, in a very special and unusual way, clergy and laity alike. Nor is this interest either technical or archaeologi cal: it is not even wholly aesthetic; it is rather a showing forth of a deeper consciousness of the eternal and indispensable na ture of the Christian religion itself, of the part it must play in the building up of a new civilization, and of the fact that if it is to do this, it must be, in a measure at least, through the agency of a sane and beautiful art.
