Architecture is theology

In the lively conversation that followed on the heals of a blog post on a friend's blog, Perry Robinson made an observation which struck me as particularly insightful, not least after my earlier comments on Gnosticism in the church. "Architecture" he said, "is theology and mystagogy. I can walk into a given church and tell you what they believe usually without knowing the tradition 9 times out of ten. With modern evangelicals the lesson is simple-God is everywhere in general and no where in particular - ecclesial docetism as it were."

Is he right about this? Visit my facebook page to discuss it.
