发现教堂的艺术
内容概要
  不论规模大小,教堂都充满着象征意义。“阅读”教堂,就是指有能力诠释教堂内部的图像、符号和象征。然而,如今具备这种能力的人已属凤毛菱角,即使经常去教堂的人也未必具备。世界上有多少座教堂,就有多少细节、局部可以被解读。彩绘玻璃画上的人物是谁?动植物又代表着什么?教堂的空间是怎样规划布局的?所有的细节都有特别的含义吗?本书将告诉您:教堂外形和内部装饰所表达的意义,教堂图画和雕刻相关的故事,分辨人物、场景的方法,颜色、字母、符号甚至花鸟鱼虫的象征……书中的故事和解释可以帮助您更好地欣赏教堂并了解与之相关的宗教艺术。带上这本书,再用心去浏览教堂风景,您就会发现,原来教堂真的不只是教堂

  •       BBC的纪录片Churches:How to Read Them (6 episodes)
      presenter就是本书的作者Richard Taylor
      和这本书一起看,受益匪浅。
      
      Churches - How to Read Them
      
      Arts Documentary hosted by Richard Taylor, published by BBC in 2010 - English narration
      
      
      Information
      Author Richard Taylor examines how the imagery, symbols and architecture of English parish churches have inspired, moved and enraged people down the centuries.
      
      Dark Beginnings
      Presenter Richard Taylor explains how churches were originally simple buildings intended to protect the altar and the most important Christian rite of all, the Eucharist. He visits Britain's finest early medieval churches to untangle the mystery of why the Anglo-Saxons and Normans seem to have been unwilling to shake off their pre-Christian past and to have continued to fill their sacred buildings with mysterious pagan images. An ancient book in an Oxford library helps Richard find an answer.
      
      
      Medieval Life
      Richard Taylor uncovers evidence that shows how and why our parish churches came to play such a crucial role in the everyday life of the Middle Ages. He looks at how humorous wall paintings and intricate carvings were used to teach moral lessons and how carved angels in such churches as Blythburgh were used to create a heaven on earth. He finds out how rites such as baptism and the largely forgotten ritual known as the 'churching of women' offered people protection from the cradle to the grave.
      
      
      Medieval Death
      Richard Taylor shows how churches were designed to give medieval people a way to escape death, with their Judgement scenes, cadaver tombs and graphic depictions of the crucifixion. He explains why scenes of suffering on the cross became so prominent and why the instruments used in the persecution of Jesus were depicted on the windows, floors and walls of sites like Malvern Priory. Taylor explains how the medieval obsession with purgatory transformed churches with the building of chantry chapels.
      
      
      Reformation - Chaos and Creation
      With the help of art historian Sister Wendy Beckett and a stained-glass window, Richard Taylor tries to understand the intense medieval devotion to the Virgin Mary and how this fuelled the anger of the Reformation that followed. Richard 'reads' a ruined church and explains how it was not Henry VIII but his boy-king successor, Edward VI, who was responsible for the greatest changes in the Reformation. He also traces how the Book of Common Prayer and the translation of the Bible into English transformed the way that the English worshipped and the appearance of their churches.
      
      
      Restoration and Reason
      Church life in the 18th century is often thought to have been genteel and dull, but Richard Taylor finds that churches in this Age of Enlightenment reflect the intellectual excitement, the vigour and the potential for conflict of a turbulent time. He shows how the symbols in the everyday parish church reveal the ever-closer identification between church and state and he tries out the triple-decker pulpit at St Mary's in Whitby, and he discovers how the London churches of Christopher Wren and Nicholas Hawksmoor reflect the latest scientific insights and archaeological discoveries of the age.
      
      
      The Victorians and after
      Richard Taylor discovers how, during the industrial revolution, medieval imagery and ritual make a surprise return to Victorian places of worship and plunge the Anglican Church into conflict. Richard retraces the controversy surrounding this Oxford Movement of Anglo-Catholics and explores their finest churches. He sees how the impact of war in the 20th century is reflected on imagery in our churches and how the First World War brought a return to another medieval practice - the commemoration of the dead.
      
      
      
  •       还是英文书名 how to read a church 贴切,中文书名让人以为书里都是教堂的图片,其实是讲教堂图案的意义,然后介绍了很多圣经和基督教人物的来历和故事,教堂的结构布局啥的。
      
      其实本来更期望书中更侧重教堂建筑的方面,比如各地教堂的建筑风格,某些比较神奇的,有特色教堂介绍,更多的教堂艺术,比如壁画,玻璃镶嵌,马赛克等的图等等。结果这方面还是不够多。还好还有些教堂图案符号的说明和布局结构啥的,不然这书就没看头了。有人物的介绍的书已经太多了。
