Sunday, June 28, 2020 – Today we are going up, up, up! We are going to start building the inside of our minor Basilica; the vertical cross-section (AKA the vertical layout), if you will. It will just be the basic sections of the vertical layout. You will have to tune in at a later date Read More

Day 103 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on Church Architecture (Part VII)

Saturday, June 27, 2020 – This is going to be the last horizontal build-out for our not-so-tiny Church.

We are just going to Read More

Day 101 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on Church Architecture (Part VI)

Thursday, June 25, 2020 – Today we take a side trip down some really old (OLD!) Church architecture terms. We are going to cover: a portico, the atrium, a porch, the bema, and the cathedra.

Day 96 – Mrs. Flusche’s Super Basic Primer on Church Architecture (Part II)

Saturday, June 20, 2020 – Today we are going to discuss the basic layout of a cruciform church. And by basic, I mean the most bare bones terms, starting with “direction.” Yes, I mean: North, South, East, and West. While many churches built today do not actually face East, traditionally Churches were built that way. Read More
