Please join Columbia Catholic Ministry and the Thomistic Institute on Wed., April 18 at 7:30pm in Corpus Christi Church for a lecture by Dr. Paige Hochschild titled "Architecture: Thinking about Beauty and Reason." Doors open at 7pm, and a reception will follow from 8:30-9:00pm. This event is free and open to the public.
Dr. Hochschild will discuss the nature of beauty in the Catholic intellectual tradition, and its relationship to human rationality. Given the unique character of Corpus Christi Church, the talk will address the way that Georgian church architecture draws on Renaissance principles of clarity and harmony, in order to balance the eschatological centrality of the Mass with the cosmological sense of peace internal to the building.
