Church Architecture in the Era of Vatican II

By Richard Hurley

*Last few remaining* Save €30

One of Ireland's foremost architects tells the story of how Irish church building responded to the liturgical changes initiated at Vatican II when a new understanding of liturgical action led to new requirements in liturgical space. As the story unfolds it is richly illustrated - every page carries photographs (most in full colour) of churches and works of art, plus plans of buildings. A lengthy section devoted to the work of artists contains twenty-three colour pictures of work by artists such as Benedict Tutty, Imogen Stuart, Oisín Kelly, Ken Thompson, Phyllis Burke. This book is an enlightening record of the contribution of architects and artists to enhancing the life of worship.
