Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fascinating and inspirational look at the vital link between the hidden geometrical order of the universe, geometry in nature, and the geometry of the man-made world.

The Da Vinci Code has awakened the public to the powerful and very ancient idea that religious truths and mathematical principles are intimately intertwined. Sacred Geometry offers an accessible way of understanding how that connection is revealed in nature and the arts. Over the centuries, temple builders have relied on magic numbers to shape sacred spaces, astronomers have used geometry to calculate holy seasons, and philosophers have observed the harmony of the universe in the numerical properties of music. By showing how the discoveries of mathematics are manifested over and over again in biology and physics, and how they have inspired the greatest works of art, this illuminating study reveals the universal principles that link us to the infinite.

Synopsis:

The Da Vinci Code has awakened the public to the powerful and very ancient idea that religious truths and mathematical principles are intimately intertwined. Inside Sacred Geometry, internationally-acclaimed author Stephen Skinner shows how the beauty in nature, music, art, and architecture is based on an underlying geometry. By demonstrating that the discoveries of mathematics are manifested over and over again in biology and physics, and that they have inspired the greatest works of art, this illuminating study reveals the universal principles that link us to the infinite.
