St Paul’s Cathedrals

St Paul, one of Jesus’s twelve, is obviously a very popular chap in the Christian world, as there are a rather large number of Cathedrals around the world bearing his name. I have visited three of them: St Paul’s Cathedral London (probably one of the most iconic buildings in the world, not to mention most iconic Cathedrals), St Paul’s Cathedral Melbourne, and St Paul’s Cathedral Wellington. These three buildings are all architecturally very different, but that is a good thing.

Interestingly, all three of these Cathedrals are Church of England/Anglican. The Catholics seem more likely to favour St Patrick, St Mary or St Peter.

St Paul’s Cathedral London was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and completed in 1701.

St Paul’s Cathedral Melbourne was designed by William Butterfield and was completed in 1891, with the spires designed by John Barr, added in 1926.

St Paul’s Cathedral Wellington was designed by Cecil Wood in 1938, and completed in 1998.
