Description

The present work is an attempt to examine and interpret the more important current canonical legislation with regard to church building and sacred art. The discussion throughout is based on a historical, theological, and pastoral concept of a church as a house of God and His people. The work is not intended to be an exhaustive study but is designed to give priests and religious, architects and artists, and those laymen who are patrons of the arts, a fundamental understanding of the liturgical requirements of ecclesiastical architecture and sacred art.
