聖家堂 彩繪玻璃

Sagrada Familia stained glasses

很多歐洲天主教堂都有彩繪玻璃,聖家堂自然不例外,而彩繪玻璃在高第手上,當然與別不同。

 

西班牙陽光燦爛,光度夠強夠硬,大概高第算準了太陽運行的角度,聖家堂的彩繪玻璃都裝在最光猛之處,在戶外猛烈毒辣的陽光,在聖家堂內卻是柔和彩光,光猛太陽經彩繪玻璃折射入教堂,幻化為七彩亮光,温柔地包圍着教堂內的人們。

 

大惡人走在七彩亮光下,都好像鍍了一層聖光,在輕柔潔麗的彩光下,窺見到天堂,大概高第相信人性本善,在他眼中,每個人都是天使。

 

Stained glasses was common in European Catholic churches. And Sagrada Familia had lots of stained glasses too.

And with Gaudi, of course it would be different.

 

Spanish sun is amazing. Sunlight is strong and hard. Gaudi probably had a precise calculation on sun. Every stained glass in Sagrada Familia was set up to get the strongest sunlight. It was a strong sun outside but it was a soft colorful light in the church through the stained glasses. The soft colorful light surrounded the people in the church gently.

 

Even a villain was covering with a layer of holy light when he/she walked under the soft colorful light. Heaven could be glimpsed in this beautiful light.

I could imagine Gaudi believed in all the goodness. Everyone is an angel in his eyes.
