Untitled[edit]

I think consideration need to be given to a merge of this page with Ecclesiastical architecture. Ecclesiastical is the correct term given architecture pertaining to religion. Giano | talk 21:03, 24 June 2006 (UTC)

I think it may be more appropriate to merge the ecclesiastical architecture stub with the much better developed article on church architecture. Glenn4pr 03:33, 25 September 2006 (UTC)

Religion, Time-period or style?[edit]

I notice the headings are sometimes relating to the religion (Hindu, Islam), other times it is by time period(Medieval, Modern and post-modern), still other times it is by style (Gothic, Baroque). Is there a better way to organize this structure? Bytebear 18:07, 13 December 2006 (UTC)

Sacred architecture v's Religious architecture[edit]

It god-smacks and disbehoves me the suite of uniformed rationales that my peers provided for keeping the rubric "Religious architecture" instead of the inclusive auspice nominated... when the change of category was completed none of the aforementioned peers have re-qualified the opening paragraph which is still as per my edits. They clearly took a deep interest in improving the article: *coff coff* . Uniformed democracy is anathema! Altars, standing stones, sacred groves, mandala, medicine wheel and temenos are sacred architecture but they may not be religious architecture...

Freemasonry and Sacred Archictecture[edit]

After reading Frank Albo's 2007 essay Masonic Parlante in a Canadian Temple of Democracy: The Manitoba Legislative Building as Initiatory Theatre, I'm surprised there isn't a section in this article on the link between Freemasonry and sacred architecture. --Loremaster (talk) 02:01, 5 January 2010 (UTC)
