About this Episode

The architecture of a Catholic church is not random, it's meant to share the story of our faith. In this special episode, Dr. Sri joins us from the Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome to teach us how to read a Catholic church. Using this historic Basilica as an example, Dr. Sri helps us understand and appreciate the rich theological meaning behind its architecture.

Snippet from the Show

"Catholic churches are theology in stone, mosaics, and glass. The very architecture of our churches is meant to share a story."
