Two Ignatius Press authors have an engaging conversation in the pages of The Catholic Herald about that question; the conversation has been going on with an exchange of letters going back to last summer (see links below). The two authors are Moyra Doorly, who wrote No Place for God: The Denial of Transcendence in Modern Church Architecture(Ignatius Press, 2007), and prolific author and theologian Aidan Nichols, O.P., whose books include Looking at the Liturgy (1996), Hopkins: Theologian's Poet(2006), Lovely, Like Jerusalem: The Fulfillment of the Old Testament in Christ and the Church(2007), and Rome and the Eastern Churches: A Study in Schism(2010).Readers may remember our posts on the earlier portions of this exchange in "Moyra Doorly and Aidan Nichols on the Novus Ordo" (Musings, October 30, 2009), and "The Meaning of Fidelity to Tradition: more from Moyra Doorly and Aidan Nichols" (Musings, January 1, 2010). Carl Olsen lists the prior exchanges between Fr. Nichols and Doorly back to July 3, 2009, in his Ignatius Insight Scoop post linked above.
