Architecture in the Middle East, Church

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary

Abstract

Historical accounts frequently conflate Middle Eastern Christian architecture with its Byzantine style. However, the region’s architecture for Christian worship developed
in subregions with diverse histories and complex stylistic exchanges. What lends regional Christian architecture its richness is its mosaic of approaches to Christian spirituality. This article discusses the diverse developments of Middle Eastern architecture informed by Christian ritual and spirituality.
