'Catholic emancipation in England dates from 1829 and cathedrals were ... know, all other RC cathedrals were built after this time.

I was going to rejoin with Westminster Cathedral, but I find to my astonishment that it was begun in 1865.

And is still unfinished, I believe. It is a strange place. Killing time in the area on a wet day, I ventured inside, not long after our summer trip which included visits to many cathedrals (I liked Helsinki the best). It was dark and gloomy but surprisingly homely and quite busy for a weekday mid-morning. I got the impression that quite a few people working locally pop in for a quick pray. I felt unusually comfortable there.

I haven't been inside Helsinki Cathedral - I will try to find the time on my next visit. Visiting Westminster Cathedral, however, would involve going to London.

I loved Helsinki Cathedral - it's very plain and full of light, a terrific contrast to St Isaac's in St Petersburg. The steps up to it were a bit of a killer as it was hot when we were there. There is a wonderful little building opposite which houses some lovely craft shops. But the most impressive religious building I've visited in the last few months has to be the Mesquita in Cordoba.

Is Cordoba still white and silent?
The city and the mesquita and the little courtyard with the statue of Maimonides are all a part of the world of my dreams.

It wasn't very silent when we were there last March - full of tour parties - but it was certainly white and the Rambam is still there. If you search Google Images for maimonides+cordoba you'll find some pictures to remind you.
I found it very poignant to realise that Muslims, Christians and Jews had lived together so peacefully and so productively for such a long time. I was especially moved by the signatures of the workmen on the pillars in the mesquita.
