Welcome to Locus Iste. This site is intended to be a resource for all those interested in the design and study of church architecture. The primary resources of the site are a database of architecturally and/or liturgically significant buildings and a database of texts relevant to the study of church buildings. So far our focus has been on functionality. Most site functions are operational, but there are still some bugs that need working on. Now we are starting to add content. We have populated the building database with over 100 buildings so far. Most of these are stubs, and we will add more information as we go along. The bibliography database and additional resources should be filled out in the near future.
The next two major projects will be the addition of resource links and the refinement of categorization for the buildings database.
