St. Louis Churches and Such

Traveled up to St. Louis with one of my professors for the express purpose of looking at old churches (old being relative of course- stuff from the late 1800's, early 1900's, but mostly modeled on Gothic and Romanesque churches in Europe). He is also conducting a religious architecture course, of which I am a student; this trip went along with the course, and counted for three hours credit. Which means I aquired credit hours simply for wandering about in old churches and museums. Not bad. The following are a few pictures I took of some of the spots we visited.


The interior of St. Louis Cathedral, which has the largest single concentration of mosaics in the world. Magnificent church.

A view of the cathedral from the back, looking up at the wonderful Byzantine-looking dome.


This is a neo-classical styled Methodist Church, which stands in a section of St. Louis known as Holy Corner due to an unusual concentration of religious entities within a few blocks.


The Old Cathedral down near the Arch.


The interior of St. Ambrose of Milan. Very nice Romanesque church, in the Italian neighborhood, where there are some pretty decent eateries.

Wow, that would be fun! I visited the St. James Cathedral here in Seattle, and it was simply breathtaking. A whole tour sure would be cool.
