Officially its a museum now, people still worship there so take it with a grain of salt. Also I didnt post the St Isaac's pic.

Yes. Not only that, they worship the correct way. Also, it was a way of funding Orthodoxy without having to create a bill to fund all of Othodoxy like Greece does so it's state supported.

Thoughts on the Knoxville cathedral completed this month?

They don't have indulgences and merchants financing them.

Forgot the pic.

That's weird, normal cross shape but got sort of a Regency vibe to it. I like it, could do with some vegetation and its a real waste not having stain glass in those feature windows. Its looking bland as fuck at the moment.

would deffinetely look better with some nice conicals out the front, and a painted soffit and gable, maybe a flower garden.

The interiors aren't that great (but I guess they match the outside), though I like the lamps and the baldachin.

But for real, thats a really fucking nice dome. Rest of the interior is too bland for my taste, but maybe that just helps draws the eyes to the front. I like it, its pretty amazingly done, but lets be honest 1000 years of being the most expensive buildings in the world kinda has it beat.

The Pre Raphealites were Catholics.

Dedication a few weeks ago:


because some people bless the poor by giving them gold, not sitting on it.

Catholics made those awesome aesthetics, but imagine what could be done if they donated it?

Those poor people died 500 years ago, the churches are still there. Anywho, im just here to complain about modern cathedrals, the oldest cathedral in the country got knocked down by an earthquake and the fucks rebuilt it in the worst possible way.

They did give charity you fucking retard. How come you remember them doing one side of it but not the other?


They rebuilt is as a publicity stunt to show they werent wasting resources but the fucking thing cost as much as the rebuild. Also its made out of cardboard.

It's ironic that modernist furniture and hardware are just as expensive as classical ones, sometimes even more expensive.

Also youve outed yourself as an orthodox autismo.

why have i "outed" myself? yes i am orthodox

and the architecture isn't unique among orthodox, it's also catholic, ever heard of "eastern catholic"?

every stone you throw at orthodox christians you drop right on your own head

Is this now a cathedral thread?

Who said im catholic? I just like cathedrals and needed a hook.

this wins

Man wells looks different from the side.

Don't get me wrong, I always love any heartfelt religious architecture, but I always seem to find massive Catholic cathedrals to be "tacky", for some reason.

Maybe it's personal bias, being raised Orthodox, but all of the character scenes, the stained glass windows, the abundance of stone and empty space, etc. always made them feel kinda weird to me.

I much prefer more subdued aesthetics. A few inspiring icons, a well-curated but simple nave, etc.

Then again, I am a Zen Buddhist, so take that how you will.

Actually only found it a couple of days ago, was searching up St Peters and Pauls cathedral (the rhode island one), theres like 1000 different St Peter and Paul cathedrals, alot of which are Orthodox. Who'da thunk.

Undeniably the best cathedral interior

Attached: Ely_Cathedral_interior_10.jpg (2362x3543, 1.88M)

All these churches are made by architects/engineers/mathmeticians who probably didnt give a shit about religion. They were only doing something they liked as a job for the client.

You have a keen eye friend. They look like skylights

Also is it me or do English cathedrals look a lot darker and more perpendicular (weird way to put it) then their continental counterparts?
