St Peter’s Cathedral in the Vatican City — the most important church in Roman Catholicism
Churches have formed the stage for historical events, from the assassination of St Thomas Becket in Canterbury Cathedral in 1170, to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II at Westminster Abbey in 1953. More importantly, they are time capsules showing cultural development through the ages, reflecting the architecture, art, wealth and politics of the society who built them.
