What's your opinion on offering Mass in baroque vestments in a Gothic chapel?

I watched the extended LOTR trilogy ;) apart from its grand heroism and classical mold of protagonists, it was very dark and medievalish, yes. Obviously the novels are even more intense, from what I've heard. The original cover Tolkien designed for the Return reminds me of the Book of Kells, hehe.

Also, H.K.,

Quote:*shrug* A few saints who lived in the High Middle Ages disliked Gothic style when it first was being created, but for wholly different reasons than what you've put here. They usually pulled the "noble simplicity" card. Your reasons boil down to liking the ancient pagan Roman ways a lot.

May I ask which saints said such?
