Cathedral of St. Jacob in Sibenik, coastal Croatia.

The cathedral construction began in the Venetian Gothic style, and was completed in the Toscano Renaissance style.

Sagrada Familia is NOT a cathedral!

In order to be a cathedral, it needs to be a cathedra or bishop's seat. As the bishop's seat is the old gothic catehdral, the Sagrada Familia will not be a catehdral, but a "Temple."

Wonderful CHURCH, but not a cathedral, as Osijek is a part of Dakovo bishop county (what is the proper term?).

Fantastic thread, Kolner Dom is my favourite - absolutely stunning

That's right. Osijek's "cathedral" is only a parish church, but because of its size and significance it's usualy called cathedral, although it is really not lol

That's right. And quite interesting, considering Osijek is 4th biggest city, and does not have a cathedral while many smaller towns do.

I love brick buildings, therefore the Osijek and Dakovo cathedrals in Croatia look cool.

The best churches in my opinion are the Spanish inspired architectures that can be found in former colonies and in Spain.

This is the shit .

Quote:
The pinnacle of gothic religious architecture in France isn't in Pairs; it's in the town of Amiens. It was here in 1220 that the gothic style of architecture took planted its roots deep in the French soil. In 1218, it is likely that few saw the burning of the 1152 Amiens Cathedral as a good thing. But in a historical context, the timing couldn't have been better. The discoveries and ideals of gothic architecture were sweeping across Europe just as the people of Amiens needed to build a wonderful new structure. The interior features vaults which are ribbed, allowing them to soar to then-unprecedented heights while allowing more light to pour through the high windows. The external double row of flying buttresses expose the skeleton of the building, while providing additional space for pinnacles, and other ornamentation. From both inside and outside, everything is designed to soar -- to reach for higher goals, and bring the viewer and his religious experience closer to God. At the time of its completion, this was the tallest church in France.

The Cathedral of Notre-Dame is a textbook example of the gothic style. Shafts of stone appear deceptively delicate as they stack upon one another through the arcade, triforium, and clerestory. The cathedral has a main nave flanked on either side by an arcade, which supports the triforium and eventually the magnificent stained glass windows of the clerestory. As space converges at the top of each bay, an oculus window fills the gap and provides even more light and beauty.

While it's nice that the cathedral gives us so many reasons to adore it, that is one reason to despise it. The casual viewer or tourist can be overwhelmed by all the eye candy. Taking time to digest the visual delights doesn't help; it just leads to the intellectual equivalent of indigestion. When the cathedral was built, people spent more time in church and could absorb its magnificence over a long period. This was a cathedral built for them and their time. Unless you live in Amiens, chances are you will be rushed through its glory and leave either unsatisfied or overwhelmed by the experience -- irony for a piece of art created 700 years before music television.

> 1218 - The original cathedral on this site burns down.
> 1220 - Work begins on the current cathedral.
> 1236 - The nave and western facade are completed.
> 1238 - Work begins on the radiating chapels.
> 1240 - Work is suspended when money runs out.
> 1258 - Work resumes.
> 1269 - The choir is completed.
> 1290 - Construction begins on the side chapels.
> 1375 - Chapel construction is completed.
> 1366 - The south tower is completed.
> 1402 - The north tower is completed.
> 1981 - The Cathedral of Notre-Dame becomes a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
> The interior height of the nave in 143 feet/46 meters.

I wonder why Détritus would rather show us Amiens Cathedral than the glorious and mighty Cathédrale Notre-Dame de la Sède in Tarbes.

Seville



I think it's the largest gothic and the third in the world after ST. Paul and ST. Peter in the Vatican City, which however were built later.

I thought the Cathedral of Cologne is the largest gothic structure in the world...?
However, Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) is my favorite one! :-)

Liverpool Cathedral is larger than St Pauls, 5th largest in the world and in neo-Gothic.
