It is often difficult to separate any theory on the nature of holiness from the context in which it was reached or pursued.
A saint always has his own effect on a favourable natural environment: in the harshness of the desert, on an uncomfortable mountain top, in the peace of a hill. And the architecture that accommodates the figure seeks the simplicity and harmony of that scenario, the result is inimitable and particularly preposterous elsewhere. Still, perhaps the white and the green do not pursue each other by chance in Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa. Camaldoli, La Verna and San Galgano, in their splendid isolation, inspire that tranquillity that is found in prayer. And then we go down amongst the people, in San Quirico d’Orcia, Sienna, San Gimignano and the length of Via Francigena (from Rome to Canterbury), so that the path of holiness, after the contemplative aspect, is improved in the active domain, principally through charity.
