Monuments To Heaven: Baltimore’s Historic Houses of Worship

Monuments to Heaven is not about religion, but rather about the famous architects and artisans who designed the magnificent Baltimore treasures built between 1785 and 1891. Using beautiful photographs, Lois and Sally will explain how the building of these churches and synagogues parallel the development of Baltimore, the ethnic groups they served, how they adapted over the years to changing demographics, and biographical information on the architects and artisans, including Benjamin Henry Latrobe, Stanford White, and Johannes Kirshmayer.

Each monument has a unique story to tell. Within is ”divine art” including stained glass, carvings, paintings, mosaics, murals, plaster, and tile work, statuary, ecclesiastical furniture, and artifacts by famed artisans. Much of this is considered to be the finest in America today.
