Religious Art & Architecture
I am a religious person, and am devoted to my own religious perspective on the world. I do, however, also appreciate and admire the art and architectural inspirations of other spiritual traditions, which create space for connecting with spirituality greater than oneself.
Exploring the world of religious art and architecture is a current project of mine, but not yet fully developed. It’s only just taking shape in my mind, and will grow with time. I’m not trying to make a full study of this very broad subject, but rather limiting myself to the easy to reach examples I find in the Washington, DC area. Note that I do NOT make theological judgments of what I see, but focus on the inspirational and admirable views.
