Peace, trascendance, happiness, and many other different emotions and ideas are experienced when we observe these beautiful churches, these imponent yet protecting and inspiring buildings. They are more than just buildings, and that is the reason they are still in our world being part of our history of our identity.
Today I am offering you two wonderful pictures, it was hard to choose, becasue none of the pictures that I could found get any close to the beauty of these constructions, so please, before posting make sure you visit many websites, look at many different books so you can appreciate different perspectives of each church.
Im just giving you a couple of hints... one is in Istanbul, it used to be in Constantinopla. The other one.... in Paris.
One is Catholic, the other is Orthodox. One is still a church, you can actually go to mass there, the other is nowadays a museum.
So, what do you have to do?
RESEARCH and POSTING.
You need to include the following:
Select one of the churches.
Offer to us, particular information on architecture or the visual arts inside or outside the church (you need to define the term you are explaining) and explain to us exactly where in the building we can see it).
Offer to us, particular information on the building history or context.
Tell us your opinion.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO NOT REPEAT INFORMATION THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN PROVIDED BY ONE OF YOUR CLASSMATES.
Please INCLUDE pictures whenever it is necessary.
Due: Friday night.
Enjoy this exercise!
