The article brings a transdisciplinary approach to church doors as works of art for the liturgy. Doors are first brought into relation according to their universal anthropological-cultural basis, and then there is a breakdown of the theological layers of tradition which defined that place – the symbol of the church and thus significantly enriched the Christian culture. In addition, the article deals with specific architectural and artistic processes of symbolization associated with the formation of the sacred threshold, which are broken down in a triple perspective: body, transition, presence. In this regard, the doors articulate a specific symbolic-ritual action and perception that initiates man in the encounter with the sacred. Then, there is an analysis of the doors of the Hvar Cathedral by a contemporary Croatian sculptor Kuzma Kovačić, in which religion and culture, modernity and tradition, sacred and beauty are fruitfully united.
