In this Table Talk, Jonathan Anderson and Matt Jenson remind us that “Sacred Space” is an ongoing conversation and actually a dominant aspect of culture—particularly Western culture. It is as old as the oldest cathedrals—and as new as recent postmodern theory. The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels represents a rich reflection on the unity of the church’s faith in Christ across time and space, but a unity that always finds a home in particular contexts. And so, while it is a decidedly sacred, and indeed Christian, space, it is also a contemporary and Californian space.
