    Cathedral and temple ground.

    Hello,

    I want to know the meaning of "cathedral" and "temple ground" in "Today’s pristine new cathedral of public space soon becomes the temple ground for another Apple store and John Varvatos." I know the literal meaning, but I don't think that is what writer has in mind.


    Thank for taking time to view my post.

    Re: Cathedral and temple ground.

    What is the original text talking about? Without more context, I would guess that it means that something like a modern mall or public space, the cathedral, soon fills up with Apple stores and designer shops, thus failing to provide anything more spiritually satisfying than chic consumerism. However, more context could very easily prove me wrong.

    I think that's what it means.
