(Merrimack, New Hampshire)— The Thomas More College of Liberal Arts will host Matthew Alderman, an architectural critic and liturgical artist, this Friday, February 27 at 8 p.m. in the College’s Humanities Room. The lecture is entitled “Why Does Our Cathedral Look Like a Sam’s Club?”
Alderman will explore the traditional Catholic quest to create the ideal sacred space, what went right and wrong in recent years, how Pope Benedict XVI is fixing it, and what Catholics today personally can do to reinvigorate the sacredness of the liturgy. He will analyze the history of the Liturgical movement, the significance of the Western tradition of iconography and sacred geometry, and the prospects for liturgical renewal in our time.
Founded in 1978, the Thomas More College of Liberal Arts is a four-year college that provides the rising generation with an education that forms them intellectually and spiritually within the Catholic intellectual tradition. Thomas More College is located at 6 Manchester Street in Merrimack, New Hampshire.
