Church of St. Paul the Apostle

cmo_2694

The building of St. Paul the Apostle began in 1876 and was completed in 1884. Inspired by the 4th- and 5th-century early Christian basilicas in Ravenna, Italy, the church is 284 feet long, 121 feet wide, and 114 feet to the highest point of the towers, which are 38 feet square. The grand exterior of the church reflects 13th-century Old Gothic. To decorate and beautify the interior of St. Paul’s, the church engaged eminent American artists such as John LaFarge, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, Lumen Winter, Stanford White, and later, William Laurel Harris. Their combined artwork can be seen throughout the church in its beautiful stained glass windows, murals, and sculptures.
