James, Walter (ed)  
Temples and Faiths
 Picture
Publisher: Skeffington & Son Limited, 1958 London.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Good to Very Good. Hardcover 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall "Some would say that a Greek temple set on a hill was the finest sight in the world, while others might make claims for St. Peter's, its dome caught in a sunset seen from Tivoli, or the towers of Vezelay against the sky-line, glimpsed from far off in the great plain that abbey dominates. The award could be made many times over, but it is doubtful whether it would fall often to a secular building. Men have lavished wealth and care on palaces, fortifications and parliaments, but the edifices of pleasure, war and government, although the urgings of personal or public dignity are strong, seem generally to have stirred architectural genius less than buildings dedicated to relgiion.The greatest work has sprung form imaginations set to the service of God, conceived in various forms, yet in each awaking the religious emotions of love, awe, fear and worship. The study of a religion through its texts and liturgies is a task for scholars. The ordinary man, with less time and knowledge, may not find himself so far from the heart of the matter if he has to confine himself to its buildings.' The very original idea behind the ten essays in this book is to consider religions in the light of the architecture that expressed them. The religious buildings discussed, and illustrated in the photographs that are a striking feature of the book range from a Hindu temple to a Welsh bethel, from an Islamic mosque to a medieval cathedral. Each essay is by an acknowledged authority. In Temples and Faiths, text and illustrations complement each other to form a completely harmonious whole. This is a beautiful and stimulating book which brings out very clearly that the great religions are not islands unto themselves." 50 pages + photographs. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Dust jacket is in GOOD or better; protective plastic wrapper.
