Chapter Summary

There are a number of fundamental elements involving the place of religion and ritual in modern Western society which come together in Tor Tre Teste church, literally taking place there. The spearhead of Tor Tre Teste became a protracted story, with many squabbles, delays, debates, oversights, technical problems, financial holes and overruns, etc. But despite all of this, a church did arise on the site. This chapter focuses on the design of Tor Tre Teste church in a general sense, and the discussion regarding it. It discusses primarily the theoretical perspective of religious and ritual studies. In the case of the Tor Tre Teste church, the perspective of Holy Ground for Liquid Ritual wonderfully runs parallel with the fact that this church was originally conceived as a pilgrimage site. With Bauman, this illuminates the connections between fluid search and fixed place.
