L’église néoclassique
Une écriture architecturale du sublime en France dans la seconde moitié du xviiie siècle ?

  • Publication type: Article from a collective work
  • Collective work: À la croisée des arts. Sublime et musique religieuse en Europe (xviie-xviiie siècles)
  • Author: Lours (Mathieu)
  • Abstract: The sublime is a thread which helps us to understand the history of the religious feeling expressed in the architecture of French churches from the second half of the eighteenth century. Architects saw it as a way of expressing transcendence with greater freedom : it allowed them to bypass the need for figurative representations and turn to a more open idea of the sacred, thus authorising the developments of the revolutionary period
