Architecture, Mysticism And Myth based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
In the words of James Forlong (Encycl. of Religions, 1906) 'Ancient architecture depended on ancient myth and symbolism. It must be carefully studied by all who seek the key to creeds.' Because of the nature and expense of temple-construction (in all nations and ages) its symbolism invariably embodies the essence of the religious values of the peoples involved. Lethaby's work is a permanent contribution to this field of study and presents much material not found elsewhere.
