Photos of All Saints Chapel, at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis
This is All Saints Chapel of the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Louis. It was designed by Louis Comfort Tiffany. This photo was taken December 15th, 2005; the others were taken on July 14th, 2006.
Click on any photo for a larger version. The extra detail is magnificent!
The ad orientem altar.
The tabernacle. The Blessed Sacrament is reserved in another chapel.
Saint Joseph holding the child Jesus.
The lighting in the background really doesn't look purple; the camera, however, is very sensitive to lighting color changes.
Ceiling of the chapel.
A view to the back of the chapel. The statue in the background is of Saint Thérèse of Lisieux, Carmelite nun, also known as the "Little Flower".
As in a previous photo, the lighting in the back hallway does not appear purple to the eye. The camera's white balance within the chapel itself was manually set, so the colors inside are fairly accurate.
Detail of mosaic on pilaster next to the door of the chapel.
Detail of attached column located next to the altar.
View of the chapel from the side; it is open to the nave from the side.
Mosaics on side of chapel. I'm not able to determine what is specifically represented here.
