Truro Cathedral

Here is an achievement worth noting. Truro is a town in Cornwall, England, with a population of only 21,000. But it boasts a magnificent cathedral.

So is this something created in the distant past? In fact, the cathedral was begun in 1880 and completed in 1910. So only about a century ago the English were still adding such magnificent buildings to their nation's heritage.

The architect responsible was John Loughborough Pearson.

Pearson designed many churches including St Augustine's in London, the interior of which is shown below:

I wasn't able to find a good photo of the interior of Truro Cathedral, but you get an idea of how fine it is from the following YouTube clip:


  1. Here's another impressive UK church/cathedral. I'm not sure where it is but the song is in Scottish Gaelic:
    Julie Fowlis - Tha Mo Ghaol Air Aird A Chuain

  2. The teachings of Srila Prabhupada on women and anti-feminism

    The purpose of this essay is to address the issue of feminism and misandry (hatred of men, the opposite of misogyny) and how it has destroyed modern society. We will be analyzing many of the statements made by Srila Prabhupada about women, their role in society, and the anti-feminism stance of his teachings.

  3. Ideologee, beautiful song by Julie Fowlis, thanks.

    Anon, some good aspects to that piece, but the recommendation that Western men don't marry or marry Asian brides isn't much use to traditionalist men. Taking those routes would only hasten the decline of the larger tradition we're trying to defend. It's better for us to practise "CGTOW" rather than "MGTOW" - communities going their own way.

    Elizabeth, glad you enjoyed the post.

  4. Magnificent details in the work.

    If I ever got into a position where I had money I didn't want I'd love to visit Europe and visit a lot of buildings like that.

  5. No doubt it will soon become a mosque, like so many churches in England have.

  6. Truro Cathedral: I can see exactly what you are getting at with this post, Mr Richardson.

    It is hard to believe the English of today are the descendants of those who designed and constructed such architectural symbols of Christianity.

  7. I love it!

    Think what would happen if we used welfare to build magnificent buildings instead of well...For Immigrants and Minorities.
