Put architecture and liturgy in dialogue, and take sacred architecture seriously as a theological place: this is the purpose of this book, based on three post-Tridentine French churches.
This operation is of triple interest: methodological for theologians who struggle to make theology from non-textual corpora, historical and documentary for architectural historians, and for all, theologians, pastors and architects engaged in reflection on the liturgical space 50 years after Vatican II. As the architect Jean-Marie Duthilleul writes in his preface, it presents itself as a "foundation stone" in order to think of sacred spaces... for today.
Gilles Drouin is a priest of the Diocese of Evry. He has been involved for many years in reflection and practice around the habitation of sacred spaces, and is a doctor of theology at the Institut catholique de Paris and director of the Institut supérieur de liturgie.
