Liturgia e arquitectura: uma nova arquitectura para um novo projecto litúrgico

José Manuel Pereira Ribeiro Gomes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



This text analyses documents published after the Conciliar Reform, from an ‘architecturological’ perspective, in order to establish fundamental principles for the ‘construction’ of a true liturgical space. The new ecclesiology, like the new living conditions (habitat) of modern mankind, demand a génie du lieu chrétien where a set of immediately perceptible meanings tell of Him who brings the community of all believers together around the altar. The model of the ‘church-home’ is the model where a dimension of welcome and hospitality, proper to our own homes, tells of meeting “through Christ, with Christ and in Christ”.
