A Cathedral Transformed by Light

interior cathedral st john divine

Last Sunday, the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine was rededicated seven years after a fire which spread smoke and soot throughout the sanctuary. The painstaking cleaning has removed decades of grime and transformed the church into a light-filled space in which architectural details can be seen for the first time in living memory, from carvings in the once-dark corners of the chapels to bas-relief angels some 200 feet overhead.
