Sacred Spaces of Greater Cincinnati reveals the architecture
and art preserved in the area's churches, temples and mosques. This one-hour documentary
combines expert commentary with High Definition video and a beautiful soundtrack
for an introductory look at changes in sacred architecture from the prehistoric
period through the 1800s to the present. Sacred Spaces is a collaborative effort
among Voyageur Media Group, Inc., CET and dozens of regional scholars, clergy
and participating organizations.
Sacred Spaces presents the full spectrum
and intricate details found in the upper reaches of these grand religious spaces,
many constructed during the 1800s. The documentary features a diversity of sacred
spaces, including such historic and modern landmarks as Plum Street Temple, St.
Peter In Chains Cathedral, Covenant-First Presbyterian Church, Christ Episcopal
Cathedral, Old St. Mary's Church, Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption and The
Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati.
Walter E. Langsam, Daniel Hurley,
Paul Tenkotte, Beth Sullebarger and other experts and clergy tell the fascinating
story behind the architectural design of each building and its place in the broader
context of Greater Cincinnati history. Voyageur and CET hope to produce additional
episodes for a documentary series covering the art and architecture of many other
sacred spaces in Greater Cincinnati.
