Battaglia, Paul Raymond
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis examines the parallels between two distinct disciplines: Architecture and Roman Catholic Mysticism. The argument centers on these disciplines' connection to the world of corporeal things and examines the convergence and divergence of the disciplines in this respect It is argued that whereas the mystic is compelled by his vocation to simply notice the beauty and the truth and the goodness of things as the work of God, the architect is required to attempt to improve things through the craft of his occupation. The poetry of Michelangelo serves as a relevant case study.
