Artist's Description

Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament (Sacramento, California)

“With construction beginning in 1887, Sacramento’s Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament is an example of the strength and history in Sacramento’s architecture. While studying at seminary college in Paris during the 1860s, Patrick Manogue became enchanted by the cathedrals and their role in a city’s community life. In 1886, Manogue was appointed as Sacramento’s first bishop. Inspired by churches he’d seen in European plazas, Manogue worked to secure property just one block away from the capitol building, with a dream of building a cathedral in Sacramento. Manogue modeled the cathedral after L’Eglise de la Sainte-Trinite (The Church of the Holy Trinity) in Paris. Once completed, there was no cathedral equal in size west of the Mississippi River. The building is a modified basilica form approximately 200 feet (61 m) long and 100 feet (30 m) wide, and it seats 1400 people. The central bell tower rises 215 feet (66 m).” —(excerpt from Wikipedia Article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathedral_of_the_B... )
