Meg Fielding has loved old churches all her life. From her childhood, being dragged from church to church with her parents, to the present day, working on a project of documenting historic brick churches along the Chesapeake Bay she still love old churches. While there are major churches that everyone knows in Baltimore like the Basilica or Old St. Paul’s, there are many hundreds more that are not noticed. She has scoured the city, hunting up these old churches to share them with you. Most are within the Baltimore City limits, but a few are just outside of the city.

Among the innovations of American sacred architecture after World War II was an interrogation of the decorative arts’ role both in religious life and in architecture itself. One common approach used by architects around the country can be defined as “Opticalism,” a neologism that denotes the deployment of aggressive and large-scale visual effects within spaces of worship. Opticalism represented a semiotic innovation, having to do with attenuating the relationship between sign and symbol.
