Research Progress

The second meeting of the Theology and the Built Environment Colloquium took place at Calvin College in May 2004. Architects, theologians, philosophers, and art historians, from the UK, the USA, Canada, France, and New Zealand gathered to engage in a conversation between theology and the spatial arts. Participants offered papers on a variety of themes including:

  • The Place and Space of Worship
  • Place, Paradigm and Narrative
  • Memory, Tradition and the Built Environment
  • Explorations in Doctrine

The papers from the colloquium, listed below, represent the research progress of the colloquium thus far and will form the basis of a series of publications that will explore the fruitfulness for theology of an engagement with the spatial arts.
