This fascinating tour of the history of Christian churches (with map provided in 45 drawings of interiors) is also an analysis of the metamorphoses in Christian piety, and the resultant variations in ritual, through nineteen centuries. Christianity, says the author, has swing back and forth between emphasizing the Resurrection and the Crucifixion, the domination of the joyful or the sorrowful theme completely changing the devotional atmosphere, the orientation of worship, and the architecture that reflects them.
