Trinity Cathedral

Sweet Jesus! Across from the bland architecture of CSU stands the magnificent Trinity Cathedral, whose construction commenced one century ago this year. Cleveland architect Charles Schweinfurth designed the English Gothic cathedral at the request of the Episcopals, and he came up with a beauty. The cut-and-molded limestone exterior dazzles. Inside, a 108-foot tower rises from cruciform pillars. An ornamental reredos at the chancel wall invites long stares, and the detail in the sanctuary renders the most banal sermon profound.
