Religious Architecture – David Macaulay

I believe that the best examples of  religious architecture are part of mankinds greatest achievements.

By working for a higher being, people seem to rise above themselves and create works that exceed all expectations.
Supported by their faith, they construct buildings that are so ingenious and emanate such craftsmanship as is seldom seen in non-religious architecture.

However, their greatest achievement is that through their buildings they have managed to persuade and touch people who do not share their faith.
