Kilde explores those different types chronologically, from the early church to the 20th century. She considers the shape, association, and use of worship rooms; the positioning of church buildings; and the interplay among church buildings and the broader culture.
Church structures were imperative to Christianity, and Kilde's very important research sheds new mild at the approach they impression all facets of the faith. Neither mere witnesses to ameliorations of non secular inspiration or nor easy backgrounds for non secular perform, churches are, in Kilde's view, dynamic contributors in non secular swap and goldmines of knowledge on Christianity itself.
