Introduction to Religious Buildings
Religious structures are everywhere in human history. They are more than shrines or marks on the landscape – they are tangible places that people make to be able to focus upon spirituality. They allow a physical space for reflection and concentration and so its not surprising that they are often found at the high points of the landscape.
The desire to be surrounded by a place of worship or spirituality has led to the most impressive structures by humans. The Great Pyramids, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, Strasbourg Cathedral, and the great temples of Asia are just some of these amazing architectural structures of great beauty and power.
