Margaret Visser, author of a book on the symbolism of churches called THE GEOMETRY OF LOVE, enters the church of Sant’Agnese furoi le Mura in Rome and proceeds to explain the profound meanings hidden in everything from stairwells to aisles, the altar, the marble tent above it, the columns and the shape of the church itself. Visser blends anthropology, theology, art history and architecture to provide us with revealing insights into the Christian search for transcendence and the evolution of Western civilization.
