Church of the Transfiguration, Cape Cod

(Image from Christianity Today)

A recent issue of Christianity Today has an article by David Neff, "The Art of Glory" (September 20, 2010), with stunningly beautiful images of Christian art photographed by Gary Gnidovic in the Church of the Transfiguration of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. As Mr. Neff puts it:
The Church of the Transfiguration, located near picturesque Rock Harbor on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, may be the most art-intensive worship space built in recent years. Everywhere you look there seems to be carved stone, cast bronze, mosaic, fresco, or stained glass.
I can say nothing in words to compare with the images, of which the photo above offers only the barest of hints, so go to the pdf of the article, which presents them in their full glory, or to the church website itself, and prepare to be transfigured . . . or at least transfixed.

Meanwhile, I have a couple of midterm exams to administer . . .

Quite like the churches frescoed by the Franciscan father "Ugolino da Belluno" (no official website, unfortunately: a Google Search is needed).

When I burrow out of all my current work, I'll Google . . .
