Megachurches

“Megachurch”—like “McMansion” or “big-box store”—is a disdainful put-down. And like many put-downs it is not particularly accurate; very large churches have been around for a long time. Think Hagia Sophia, the Gothic cathedrals, or that Vatican megabasilica, St. Peter’s, which accommodates 60,000 worshipers. […] What distinguishes the current crop of megachurches is not so much their size—none rivals St. Peter’s—but their different sense of architectural style.
