In the hierarchy of the Christian Church, a cathedral is the seat of a bishopric. They are important centers of religious activity, as well as the venue of social functions and celebrations. Often because of their size and architectural magnificence, cathedrals are amongst the most imposing buildings in many cities and towns. They tower over their surroundings, forming major landmarks. Many of these edifices, some dating back to early medieval times, have been well preserved or restored, and are repositories of the cultural heritage of a region, including precious treasures and works of art. This book documents 100 of the world's most interesting cathedrals, in a pithy, uncomplicated format. The buildings have been chosen from across the world - from Europe, the heartland of Christianity, as well as other continents, where the religion spread and thrived. The diverse selection covers monuments from a host of design genres, like the Romanesque Santiago de Compostela in Spain and Paris' Gothic Notre Dame, as well as regional styles. In scale and grandeur, they range from Cologne Cathedral in Germany to the small but impressive Wells Cathedral in England. Buildings belonging to various Christian denominations are included. Besides those founded in antiquity, the book features relatively recent establishments like the yet unfinished St John the Divine. Each building is placed in context with an introduction, and is a followed by a short timeline with key dates, names of associated personalities, including builders, religious figures and others. Striking color images complement the text.
