The West Tower of Ely Cathedral - arguably the most impressive example of Norman-Romanesue architecture in the whole of the British Isles. Standing 66m tall, the tower dominates the surrounding region of flat marshlands known as the Fens. Finally completed in the late 12th Century, the tower provides a grand western frontage for the cathedral, and serves as its main entrance, via the Galilee Porch, which was added slightly later, and is an excellent example of early English gothic style. . The tower visible to the right forms part of the south-west transept, which is the sole survivor still standing of the original two westerly transepts. The facade of the transept and the West Tower is richly decorated in a distinctively Norman style, with intersecting arches and complex mouldings. Like most of the cathedral, it is constructed from local Barnack stone purchased from the quarries of the nearby Peterborough Abbey, which in return received 8,000 eels per year from Ely Abbey. . . . #Ely  #ElyCathedral  #Cambridgeshire  #EastAnglia  #Cathedral  #ChurchesOfInstagram  #NormanArchitecture  #NormanRomanesque  #Romanesque  #RomanesqueArchitecture  #Romanico  #History  #HistoryLover  #OldStones  #HistoricMonument  #Perpendicular  #MedievalArchitecture  #GothicArchitecture  #VisitEngland  #BeautifulBritain  #PhotosOfBritain  #TheFens  #ShipOfTheFens  #Travelholic  #TravelMore 

Ely Cathedral’s magnificent Octagon - in 1322 the cathedral’s original Norman crossing-tower collapsed, and in its place a colossal stone octagonal tower was built. With eight internal arches and timber vaulting, the tower creates a wonderful spacial effect that is enhanced by the lantern which appears to float miraculously above the cavernous space where the apse, chancel, and transepts of the cruciform cathedral meet. . Standing 55m high and 23m wide, the Octagon was constructed over a hundred years before Florence’s Duomo, and the unique structure is considered one of the great achievements of medieval engineering. The lantern is also octagonal in form, but with angles offset from the great tower. The illumination of the lantern helps create a special atmosphere in the cathedral, and the collapse of the original tower must surely be considered one of those fortunate accidents of history. . . . #Ely  #ElyCathedral  #Cambridgeshire  #EastAnglia  #Cathedral  #ChurchesOfInstagram  #NormanArchitecture  #NormanRomanesque  #Romanesque  #RomanesqueArchitecture  #History  #HistoryLover  #OldStones  #HistoricMonument  #Perpendicular  #MedievalArchitecture  #GothicArchitecture  #VisitEngland  #BeautifulBritain  #PhotosOfBritain  #TheFens  #ShipOfTheFens  #Travelholic  #TravelMore

📸@gmfreiphoto  🌎Salt Lake Temple —————————————————————— “In Jesus Christ, “we have an advocate with the Father.”…Christ’s advocacy with the Father in our behalf is not adversarial. Jesus Christ, who allowed His will to be swallowed up in the will of the Father, would not champion anything other than what the Father has wanted all along. Heavenly Father undoubtedly cheers for and applauds our successes. Christ’s advocacy is, at least in part, to remind us that He has paid for our sins and that no one is excluded from the reach of God’s mercy.” @dalegrenlund  —————————————————————— #templepix  #lds  #mormon  #ldstemple  #ldsconf  #ldsmissionary  #god  #jesus  #sharegoodness  #godisgood  #churchesofinstagram  #houseofthelord  #jesuschrist  #instagood  #hisday  #saltlaketemple  #saltlakecity  #utah  #saltlakecityutah  #saltlake  #slc  #downtownslc  #utahphotographer  #utahgram  #utahisrad  #igutah  #instautah  #12apostles  #twelveapostles  #dalegrenlund  —————————————————————— Follow @temple.pix  for more temples!

I entered by chance in the Church of Santiago that had a very intriguing function in the past. The Church (Igrexa de San Miguel dos Agros) was built in the place where there was previously another one of the 12th century. It was in the current neoclassical church from the end of the 18th century that I saw this ceiling with the Eye of Providence. It was under this ceiling situated in the side chapel (chapel of Sorrows) that the condemned prayed before they were executed on the gallows. It was there that their bodies were deposited before being exhumed. An intimidating vision for a "sinner" before death on the gallows...in my opinion. . . . . #lookingup_architecture  #lookingupbuildings  #lookingup  #lookup  #minimal_lookup  #pointofview  #perspective  #santiagodecompostela  #neverstoptravelling  #travelpicture  #travelphotography  #travelphoto  #churchesofinstagram  #churchesoftheworld  #churchdecorations  #archidetails  #architecture_minimal  #amazingplace  #minimalphotography  #minimalphoto  #minimallove  #minimalmood  #sacredgeometry  #triangle  #eyeofgod  #ceiling  #sacredart  #eyeofprovidence  #eglise  #iglesia

Follow me on my Catholic journey! Had the incredible opportunity to attend the first Masses of Fr. Matthew Schuster, SJC and Fr. David Yallaly, SJC! Here is a clip of the recessional. . . The church of St. John Cantius is just sublime and this trip was one of the best I’ve taken in years! I also had the chance to meet so many of you who recognized me out of the blue! I’ll be posting some photos later on that I was able to get with some of you that I met and I look forward to meeting more of you in the future! . . What a wonderful day! We have new priests that will fight for us out there in this spiritual war! Please be sure to pray for both of these priests as they start of their journey of ministry of the Catholic Faith! . .

The church of Saint Sava in Belgrade / Serbia not only ranks among the largest Eastern Orthodox Church buildings, but also among the largest church buildings in the world. The church is especially photogenic in the evening when beautifully illuminated. If you’re extra lucky, it rained during the afternoon and the wet stones create a perfect reflection of this impressive building. . . . . #serbia  #belgrade  #beograd  #serbiatourism  #saintsava  #churchesoftheworld  #churchesandcastles  #reflectionshot  #reflectionphotography  #reflection_shots  #travelmore  #reflection_perfection  #travelnow  #balkantrip  #serbiatravel  #travelserbia  #travelpixelz  #exploreserbia  #belgradephoto  #visitbelgrade  #bestofbelgrade  #churchesofinstagram  #orthodoxchurch  #bluehourphotography  #sonyalpha7iii  #alpha7iii  #sonyalpha

All Saints, Burythorpe, has some fantastic views from up on its hill, although it gets absolutely battered by the wind. I would have quite liked a peep at the 12th-century font from the earlier church, but I couldn’t face having to climb the hill again if I went for the key! 😴 . . . #burythorpe  #yorkshirewolds  #churchcrawling  #yorkshire  #visitchurches  #churchesofinstagram  #parishchurch  #englishvillage  #churchtourism  #oldchurch  #churchhunting  #churchphotography  #heritage  #buckrose 

Kirchensonntag! Heine witzelte: „Wir leben in einer bedeutungsschweren Zeit: tausendjährige Dome werden abgebrochen, und Kaiserstühle in die Rumpelkammer geworfen.“ (Harzreise). Tatsächlich wurde 1819 der damals baufällige Dom aus Mangel an Finanzen versteigert. Den Zuschlag bekam ein Handwerker, der den Dom als Steinbruch nutzte und ihn bis 1822 abtrug. Die auf dem Foto zu sehende Vorhalle blieb stehen und diente der Aufbewahrung wertvoller Kirchenausstattung. So richtig scheinen die Goslaer bis heute keine Beziehung zum Dom zu haben. Zwar sind die Umrisse des Domes im Pflaster markiert, aber das gesamte Gelände wird als Parkplatz genutzt. Praktisch zwar, aber nicht schön. Auch die Aussicht von der Kaiserpfalz (oben rechts, Bilder kommen noch) ist deshalb nicht gerade prickelnd. . Eine gute Woche Euch allen! 🙋🏻‍♀️🙂 . . . . . . #building_shotz #visitgermany #roamtheworld #places_wow #goslar #niedersachsenentdecken #houses_phototrip #kirchensonntag #moodygrams #artofvisuals #deutschlandkarte #travel_drops #churchesofinstagram #lifeofgermany #culturetrip #incredible_europe #iamatraveler #topgermanyphoto #welivetoexplore #traveleurope 

Father God, we pray for our children today. Those in our families, churches and communities. We thank you for the way you love them and speak to them and we ask that you would help us to be more child-like in our faith. Help us to be a Church that invests in the next generation. Help us to never limit them. Thank you that you move in them and speak to them.

My picture for #churchsunday  is of a little church I visited in Torrington yesterday morning. I’m guessing there was a wedding in the afternoon with all these lovely little bunches of flowers attached to every row of benches. It looked really beautiful 🌸🌺 I admit that no, I don’t go to church every Sunday, but I do like visiting churches when I’m out and about on a photo trip. I like the atmosphere, the peace and quiet and I every now and then I light a candle for a loved family member who is no longer with us. I never take things for granted and I am very grateful for what we have got and that my family is healthy and happy and for that I always say a little quiet prayer when visiting a church and say thank you 💕🙏🙋‍♀️. #churchesoftheworld  #church  #kirche  #eglise  #churchesofinstagram  #tv_churchandgraves  #photosofbritain  #capturingbritain  #british  #moodmagic  #yourbritain  #britain24x7  #british  #visitengland  #lovegreatbritain

This is All Saints church, Theddlethorpe. It stands secluded, feels serene and is made from beautiful green sandstone which is locally sourced in north Lincolnshire. . Now in the hands of the CCT this place is so so worth the extra effort of getting the key from the nearby farm. Check-out that patch work brick repair from when sections fell down. Truly beautiful. . #churches  #churchesofinstagram  #churchcrawling  #churchcrawler  #cct  #visitchurches
