Abstract :
Explores common factors underlying ecclesiastical architecture, principally in parish churches, in England and France through the 17th and early 18th cs. Primitivism played an important role in liturgical and architectural developments in the Anglican and Gallican Churches alike. In the early stages, supported by scholarly research, both looked to the early Byzantine, and in particular the Constantinian, Church for their models, drawing parallels between the first Christian emperor and their own monarchs. In England the main architectural evidence comprises Christopher Wren's work, chiefly in the City of London in the wake of the Great Fire, and the designs prepared in response to the Act for Building Fifty New Churches, of 1711, half of which are due to Wren's pupil Nicholas Hawksmoor. In later stages, the French began to turn simultaneously towards French Gothic and to assimilate this into primitive models. Finally, in the 18th c., the contrasting situations of the two countries' internal politics, ensured radically different outcomes for Primitivism. ;
