Item description for European Church Architecture 1900-1950/ Europaischer Kirchenbau 1900-1950: Towards Modernism/ Aufbruch Zur Moderne by Klaus Kinold Wolfgang Jean Stock...
This book explores in detail twenty-four churches in ten countries throughout Western Europe, built between 1900 and 1950. Contemporary photographs and floor plans help readers identify the unique characteristics of each building, and are complemented by texts outlining the churches' architectural highlights. The author discusses the Modernist period from its genesis in the Art Nouveau movement, while theologians explore the subject of Catholic and Protestant liturgies and their relationships to the buildings. Together with its companion volume, European Church Architecture 1950--2000, this survey is a milestone in the literature on ecclesiastical architecture.
