Introduction : The glorious Jerusalem and the Harlot Babylon -- What? How? Why? : Church consecration in England 1549-1715, an unestablished ceremony -- Preaching in and on 'the temple' : Types and models for church building -- The spirit of holiness -- Sense perception and the performativity of architecture -- The culture of church building at the crossroads of history, theology, and architecture
"In 'Glorious Temples or Babylonic Whores', Anne-Françoise Morel offers an account of the intellectual and cultural history of places of worship in Stuart England. Official documents issued by the Church of England rarely addressed issues regarding the status, function, use, and design of churches; but consecration sermons turn time and again to the conditions and qualities befitting a place of worship in Post-Reformation England. Placing the church building directly in the midst of the heated discussions on the polity and ceremonies of the Church of England, this book recovers a vital lost area of architectural discourse. It demonstrates that the religious principles of church building were enhanced by, and contributed to, scientific developments in fields outside the realm of religion, such as epistemology, theory of sense perception, aesthetics, rhetoric, antiquarianism, and architecture."--Back cover
