Accessible

Is it possible that the builders placed all of these steps here because they believed all of the people with disabilities have been cured?

  1. It also depends on the kind of religion if they have a high doorstep or not.

  2. Could be, doesn't look so inviting with the closed doors either.

  3. I know what you're saying. the builders did not think about people with disabilities. They were thinking about erecting a beautiful building and ramps don't look cool in their minds.

  4. They didn't think about those things in the older times!

    1. You are so right Pat. They used to call them shut ins.

  5. Unfortunately, because of such architecture, they often were forced to be shut-ins. In some ways, humanity is actually evolving, and accessibility is one of the problems slowly being overcome, unlike war, famine and greed. I guess we could say, and only partly tongue-in-cheek, we're progressing one step at a time.

  6. You are right. Outstanding stone work but poor consideration for access (unless there is another entry point which has less barriers.) Interesting multiple cross motifs on the doors. I take it this is not a Catholic church? Love the arches, columns and windows.
