Ugly Churches

Some of those churches are actually absolutely beautiful.

I've been to the Metropolitan Cathedral in Liverpool many times and it is absolutely gorgeous inside. The altar is surrounded by and constantly illuminated by stained glass windows which echo the rising and setting of the sun.

Inside it feels like a very sacred and aesthetically beautiful space.

And how did it get like that from the original design - lack of money, since most of the European ones were built after an incredibly destructive war, and nations were only slowly being rebuilt.

BTW it looks like the Crown of Christ the King
