1. Standing, Simon. The architectural expression of Anglican rituals as disseminated through a photographic enquiry of six Devon churches.

Degree: PhD, 2000, University of Plymouth

There have been a number of publications that have set out to clarify the relationship between architectural, liturgical and ritual developments within the nineteenth century Anglican church; especially that part of the Victorian Gothic Revival where fundamental developments in architectural design and doctrinal change occurred - 1840 to 1900. A variety of graphic illustrations have supported these texts and as a photographer who has had a long standing interest in visual forms of religious expression, it has raised the question as to whether new meanings of the architectural/ ecclesiastical relationship could be established through a photographic-based research investigation. During the MPhil stage of the project the research brief was directed towards the selection of churches for detailed investigation and the construction of the photographic methodology appropriate to the research. Within the national developments of this period, Devon was a particularly significant county in respect of nineteenth century architectural and ecclesiological advancement, containing individual buildings such as St Andrew's Exwick, the presence of architects such as William Butterfield and George Edmund Street, and one of the most active ecclesiological groups to exist outside that of the Cambridge Camden Society and the Oxford Tractarians - the Exeter Diocesan Architectural Society. It was from this basis that the subject of the PhD has been developed. Using photography as primary material the methodology utilises physical and conceptual viewpoints to explore the uses of spatial configuration, light, structural forms and colour, surface and texture within each interior. This work has provided the visual form through which it has been possible to re-examine the visual and symbolic use of architectural expression and make direct visual comparison between the churches. At the same time the photographic images are important pieces of design work which will be presented as both visual documents and creative interpretations. The final thesis has been constructed from an exhibition which uses the formulations of panoramic, composite and sequential photographic imagery and a critical text that aligns the elements of historical contextualisation and analysis of the photographic enquiry. The research argues that the photographic works, by applying contemporary practices in the form of reconstructions, re-establishes the meaning and purpose of the architectural designs and promotes the use of photography as primary research.

2. Thomas, Jr., Emmett E. The Search For Structure in a Baptist Church.

Degree: M. Arch., Architecture, 1998, Virginia Tech

First Baptist Church of Guilford in Columbia, MD is seeking a design for its fourth church due to its ever increasing membership. The needs of its members and surrounding community are however not limited to worship but also include the desire for commercial areas for business ventures, day care, and recreational facilities. These desires have the making of a â Super Churchâ which has become all too common in metropolitan areas. The requirements of a growing church body requires the architect to have an understanding of the denomination, liturgy, and possess the design creativity to construct a structural envelope that is suitable for a religious building. The purpose of this thesis is to explore alternative prototypical structural and architectural solutions in response to the building program created by the Architectural Committee and their design consultants. Advisors/Committee Members: O'Brien, Michael J. (committeechair), Blizard, Mark A. (committee member), Rott, Hans Christian (committee member).

3. Melchers, Marisa Johanna. Nederlandse kerkarchitectuur in de twintigste eeuw: functie en betekenis van het kerkgebouw in een veranderende samenleving.

Degree: 2011, Faculty of the Humanities, Leiden University

This doctoral thesis describes the cultural history of Dutch church architecture in the twentieth century, a period in which more than 5,000 churches were built in the Netherlands. The majority of these houses of worship are not listed buildings and suffer from a lack of maintenance. Because of the country’s overwhelming secularization, more and more churches are vacant, for sale or slated for demolition. The absence of any general study of the function and significance of modern churches in the Netherlands complicates the discussion in religious, cultural and political circles about the future of this vulnerable group of buildings. One major factor in the design, decoration and organization of these churches was the liturgical renewal within the Roman Catholic Church and two Protestant religious communities, the Nederlandse Hervormde Kerk and the Gereformeerde Kerken in Nederland. The democratic impulse to foster greater participation in services by the congregation had an aesthetic dimension. At the same time, demographic and urban developments put pressure on congregations to construct new churches at a rapid pace. Priests and pastors looked to architects to accommodate their liturgical and pastoral preferences by designing distinctively modern churches. In the late 1960s, both Catholic and Protestant churches became functional houses of worship, drained of their traditional sacred character.
