Churches, Cathedrals, and Chapels: A Teacher's Guide. Education on Site.
Morris, Richard; Corbishley, Mike
This book aims to: (1) provide information that sets places of worship in their religious, historical and social contexts; (2) explore interdisciplinary links; and (3) offers ideas for study, projects, and follow-up work. "Church" is a word with two senses: a body of believers and a building where people worship. This book is about the buildings, but it is important for pupils to be reminded that Church members regard their buildings as expressions of living faith, not inert monuments. The chapter titles include: (1) "Definitions and Settings"; (2) "What Went On in a Church?"; (3) "When Were Churches Built?"; (4) "Under and around the Church"; (5) "Repair, Restoration, and Re-Use"; (6) "Educational Approaches"; and (7) "Churches across the Curriculum." A timeline, bibliography, and resources section complete the text. (EH)
