Thinking about Houses

Posted on March 24, 2015 by PLT Staff

Recording of a lecture given by Timothy Gorringe at the Spring Institute for Lived Theology 2006 in Charlottesville, Virginia. Gorringe explores some scriptural references to houses and the home in an attempt to discover if they are given significance in the Bible. He goes on to argue about the role of buildings if bodies are temples of the spirit.

Excerpt: “Vernacular architecture is by definition an architecture which emerges from the local. It embodies a response to climb it, it uses local materials, and it embodies social form and tradition.”
