The Gin Palace, or the Crystal Palace on Sunday? A Prose Canticle
Architecture, Natural Theology, Design, Education, Religious Authority
Discussing the idea of opening the Crystal Palace on Sundays, points out that the building 'will contain wonders of creation' which can help preachers demonstrate 'the benevolence, justice and wisdom, presiding over the universe'. Suggests that some 'heterodox wretch might even propose to have services, in the spirit of the Bridgewater treatises' in the building 'amidst objects which would certainly afford the strongest evidences of the principles asserted in those volumes'.
