German Lutheran ChurchesStreaming Video - 2006
When Lutheranism was born, the need for a new style of church was born along with it. Drawing on architectural examples from Germany and North America, this video connects principles of Lutheranism-for example, that everyone in the congregation should be able to see and hear everything that goes on in a service-to church shape, seating arrangement, and the placement of the altar, the pulpit, and the baptismal font. The religion's Roman Catholic roots are examined as well, in order to see how they influenced the design of these churches.
