Re Oswald’s last posting: It is clear that Oswald knows nothing about the history of the development of the Latin Rite and its liturgical use of space. It is neither helpful nor useful to read a struicture like the cathedrals of Albi or Seville or Auch with a modern idea of “community”. Much more to the point would be St. Paul’s idea of corporation -each part having its own thing to do yet all parts making up the one Body. I have been posting these examples to demonstarte that St. Colman’s Cathedral, while inspired by gothic models, is not a gothic cathedral. Its liturgical use of space, while drawing on gothic prototypes, is not gothic. Indeed, the point to be made about Cobh Cathedral is that it is a “modern” building and its liturgical use of space is also “modern”. Perhaps Oswald should begin to read a little Jungmann and forget about his Cassell inspired a-historicism.
