Volto Santo isn’t the cathedral of Turin: Volto Santo is a normal church because the cathedral is the church of bishop… St. Peter in Rome isn’t the cathedral of Rome: San Giovanni in Laternano is the cathedral of Rome; the basilica of Our lady of the Peace isn’t the cathedral of Yammoussoukro, but it’s a normal church.

>> Modern Cathedral or Modern church?


I don't speak English..

Catedral de Sal Zipaquirá Colombia

The Salt Cathedral at Zipaquirá (Spanish: Catedral de Sal) is an underground Church built in a tunnel of salt mines 200 mts inside a salt mountain near the town of Zipaquirá, in Cundinamarca, Colombia.

Curving and twisting tunnels descend into the Roman Catholic temple, passing 14 small chapels representing the stations of the cross, which illustrate the events of Jesus' last journey. Each station has a cross and several kneeing platforms carved into the salt structure. The temple at the bottom has three sections, representing the birth, life, and death of Jesus.

The actual cathedral was finished in 1995.

This is the 'Santuario della Madonna delle Lacrime' in siracuse siciliy.
It is supposed to resemble a teardrop. The church commemorates a small icon of the Madonna which began weeping tears in 1953.







This is the biggest one i could find from the inside of the dome:

Licheń Stary (Poland) constructed between 1994 and 2004. The Sanctuary is Poland's largest church, the seventh largest in Europe and eleventh in the World.

When I think of modern looking cathedrals, I always think of the Crystal Cathedral in Anaheim, California.

This cathedral in Dresden's historic core was recently rebuilt in traditional style.

Arnhem's Eusebius is a case like Dresden's yet it's now rather different.

Particularly new as you'll find Walt Disney characters instead of religious symbols

Eusebius is now an exhibition room and restaurant with an elevator in the tower.

Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow, built in 1995-2000. It's a copy of the original cathedral that was demolished by the order of Stalin to clear space for Palace of Soviets.




Cathedral of Saint George, Moscow(or maybe church, i'm unsure how it should be called properly), with a modern touch to it, built in 1995


Petrpopavlovski Cathedral , near Prokhorovka(site of the largest tank battle in history), built in 1995

I think the first Santo Volto cathedral is great, the old mine one has superb lighting and the crystal cathedral is amazing.

Here's Coventry cathedral, destroyed in the blitz and rebuilt in a modern style around the original's ruins. O.k being almost 50 years old now doesn't make it truly new, but in the grand scheme of cathedral building it certainly is.

Original:


Destroyed November 14th 1940:


rebuilt between 1956 and 1962:

sorry about this one being so big:
