Yesterday was Easter, and I do hope you had at least a great meal planned with family or friends. If you’re still in the church-viewing type mood after this holiday, the library has a new DVD in our non-fiction DVD section you may want to try out. Great Churches and Cathedrals takes the viewer on a grand an majestic journey through some of the world’s most beautiful Catholic and Protestant churches with a majestic music score in the background. Both video and photo stills are used to take the viewer on a stately journey through time and place. The narrator guides the viewer through the history of the architecture involved with church building over the centuries and also the details that make these buildings truly unique. Churches are known for being places packed with symbols from the stained glass meant to convey the faith message, stone carvings showing the struggle between good versus evil, and much more.
This DVD is just over an hour long, perfect for someone who would like to do a little arm chair traveling, or someone who has that vacationing bug that seems to strike around this time of year but may be a little tight on money. And if you would like more documentary type films to watch, the library is slowly building a collection. Come on by to see what else we have that you might like, or suggest an addition to our collection!
You can get the DVD reviewed here, which was Great Churches and Cathedrals produced by World Wide Multi Media, and more great titles to watch, read, listen to, or play with at the Port Library at 1718 N. Hersey in Beloit. This is director Rachel Malay, saying “Thanks for checking us out!”
