Colorado's Historic Churches (Landmarks)

Colorado's Historic Churches (Landmarks) by Linda Wommack
English | May 6th, 2019 | ISBN: 1467142824 | 144 pages | EPUB | 3.41 MB

Colorado's houses of worship reflect the same trademark resourcefulness and fortitude that the pioneers and history makers demonstrated throughout the state's history. Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, established in 1854, remains the state's oldest church. Formed by a group of African American settlers, including former slaves, Zion Baptist became Colorado's first black congregation on November 15, 1865. On May 23, 1868, famed frontiersman Christopher "Kit" Carson died in the historic chapel at Fort Lyon. And thanks to con artist Jefferson Randolph "Soapy" Smith, who raised $600, Creede erected its first church in 1892. From notable parishioners to murders in two separate Denver churches, historian Linda Wommack surveys the heritage and wealth of holy houses in the Mile High State.

Gothic Antiquity: History, Romance, and the Architectural Imagination, 1760-1840 provides the first sustained scholarly account of the relationship between Gothic architecture and Gothic literature (fiction; poetry; drama) in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Although the relationship between literature and architecture is a topic that has long preoccupied scholars of the literary Gothic, there remains, to date, no monograph-length study of the intriguing and complex interactions between these two aesthetic forms.

Internationally renowned timber-frame architect and craftsman Jack A.

English | August 26th, 2019 | ISBN: 1785006193 | 160 pages | EPUB | 154.54 MB

Modernist architecture in Britain brought honesty to the structure of buildings and clean lines free of historical ornament to the style, establishing new ideas on how people could live and work. Where did this architecture come from? And who were the British and emigre architects creating Modernism in the UK? This book tells the story of Modernist architecture, from nineteenth-century Chicago to post-war Britain, concluding with a look at the continuing evolution of architectural style, from Post-Modern to the work of Zaha Hadid.
