Theology in the Architecture of Ancient Churches in Kerala : Re-presents the Philosophic, Art and Aesthetic Dimensions Focusing Vastu Vidya in Indian Cultural Traditions

This book is the outcome of author's research into the technical aspects of the architecture of selected ancient churches of Kerala, which is rooted in the history and prevailing cultural traditions, in the light of the Bible. The book unfolds the unfathomable theological elements in the church architecture of St. Thomas Christians, which was pivotal for our predecessors during the design and construction of spiritual edifices. The author candidly argues that, even though the churches or places of worship are built with materials of this world, they are consecrated as houses which epitomize the glory of the Almighty and where God dwells with all His/Her majesty and grandeur.
