Title: A ordem de uma geral maneira de edificar
Issue Date: 2003
Abstract: Just a common way of raising a church The See stands out among the greatest Manueline works, as the episcopal church of the new Portuguese territories of the Atlantic Islands, West Africa and India. Though it can be compared to the reign's main sees in terms of size, it followed the King's wishes of raising a common church, using a model that had been known since Gothic times. It is a simple expression of architecture, but it is also an innovating conception of interior values, principles of design, symmetry and proportion with similarities with contemporary work done on the Jerónimos church. The difference in the architecture of the See of Funchal as compared to other sees is rather intentional. Here, the Gothic language bears the imprint of the original island settlers, who are behind the identity of the place and time. This is but a common church that opens the doors to the churches of the new world.
