Summary:
The greatest religious structures are marvels of engineering, technology, and invention, representing not only the glory of God, but also the ingenuity of man. This feature-length special charts the challenge of erecting the five breakthrough monuments from the birth of Christianity to the present day. Each structure broke the engineering mold by demanding that their builders go higher and bigger than ever before--sometimes leading to disaster as domes collapsed and massive walls and pillars buckled under the strain. We'll reveal the secrets of their epic construction using computer-generated imagery coupled with material specially-shot on location, and interviews with experts. Each building combines major technical innovation with breathtaking human endeavor, strokes of genius, ambition, and intrigue. We'll visit the Hagia Sofia, Notre Dame, St. Peters Cathedral, Barcelona's Segrada Familia, and the Crystal Cathedral in LA.
