There is an absolutely beautiful [tag]cathedral in Spokane, WA[/tag], the [tag]Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist[/tag], that has some gorgeous [tag]stained glass windows[/tag]. If you are lucky enough to live nearby, or if you travel to Spokane this is one spot you should not miss. You can take a guided tour of the cathedral. I took the tour this week and I greatly enjoyed it.
There are numerous stained glass windows, many huge windows (over 24 feet tall) many smaller stained glass windows, and a beautiful mosaic inside the cathedral. The stained glass [tag]rose window[/tag] in the west is superb. It is a classic high gothic design.
The cathedral itself is a splendid example of [tag]gothic architecture[/tag]. I took some pictures of the Cathedral of St. John inside and out and you can view a few of them here.
On the St. John’s Cathedral website they have an article about stained glass in general and about the St. John’s Cathedral stained glass windows in particular. They describe the windows in detail.
Their website also has a pictorial display/slide show illustrating how the new cathedral stained glass windows were built. It is fascinating to see all of the steps involved with this project and is well worth viewing. To view it visit their Online Resources page and click on the link: See how the New Cathedral Stained Glass Windows are built!
Enjoy these beautiful windows!
