A simple village church
August 20, 2009
A simple village church or chapel has its own charm; one is not awed by the majesty of a God that is far above like in a Gothic cathedral, but feels the down-to-earth of an intimate place of worship instead. It is more human and hence touches you in a different way.
Below is a photo essay of a small church in a village called St. Sauveur Gouvernet in the Baronnies, south of France. Somehow a Romanesque arch feels differently to a Gothic one and when there are no decorations the space can make its presence felt in emptiness…
