“The church, I mean the Catholic Church, is so evidently theatrical in its pomp, the décor that we would try in vain to improve, the purple hangings, the central actor in his white and gold costume flanked by fair-haired side-kicks marked with rouge, the thunderous music or the insidious birdsongs flowing from the organ pipes, tragic or subjugated choruses, a public brought to its knees by the central scene…” –Alain Badiou, Rhapsody for the Theatre: A Short Philosophical Treatise (1990)
