Pillars of the Earth

Washington National Cathedral – Washington, DC

With apologies to Ken Follett, but every time I go into a huge religious structure I immediately think of his book by the same title. The Washington National Cathedral is no exception, and is a place I like to revisit every so often to see new details and aspects that I missed on prior visits – in this case, some of the beautiful arch work in the exterior side hallways.

  1. I read the history of how it was built. For a long while, it was thought the cathedral would not be completed. But, most cathedrals are often thought to be “incomplete,” with many features still left on the original architectural plans. Sagrada Familia in Barcelona comes to mind. It is an active church, but it still has active, ongoing construction.
