The Cathedral Church of

St. John the Divine

by Cassie Farrelly
[farrelly@murray.fordham.edu]


cathedral A
Located on Amsterdam Avenue at 112th street, the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City represents Medieval Architecture against the backdrop of one of the most modernized cities in the world. Given the relative "newness" of the United States in comparison to its fellow nations, the revival of Gothic and Romanesque architecture embodied in many of its churches is an impressive feat. The construction of St. John the Divine, which will be the second largest religious edifice in the world when completed, is testament to an appreciation for Medieval architecture in the United States and, in particular, New York.
