Summary "BUILDING IN THE NAME OF GOD charts the challenge of erecting five breakthrough monuments, traveling from the birth of Christianity to the present day. Each edifice demanded 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. The secrets of their construction come to life through computer-generated imagery, extensive location footage and testimony from architectural, engineering, and spiritual experts. Each building combines major technical innovation with breathtaking human endeavor, strokes of genius, ambition, and intrigue. The five sites examined in this feature-length special are the Hagia Sofia, Notre Dame, St. Peters Cathedral, Barcelona's Segrada Familia, and the Crystal Cathedral in Los Angeles." - website
