Essay originally delivered before the Ecclesiological Society of Cambridge, England, a powerful force in the restoration of classical and medieval styles for church construction and decoration in both England and America.  This anonymous essay was initiated after a visit to the Continent and a study of the use of fine art in the decoration of churches.  “The subject to be discussed is, the employment of the arts of painting and sculpture in the decoration of churches, as auxiliaries to the worship of the Almighty God.”
