Trip Report Controversial Cathedral & Gregory Peck

Jump to last reply

Yet another place you can visit while in L.A.:

"I must confess (pun intended) that I can see why there was some controversy when it came to the construction of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels that serves as the Mothership for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

From 1876 until 1994 the Cathedral of Saint Vibiana (seen below in an old photo) had that distinction, but it was severely damaged in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. There was considerable controversy about rebuilding Saint Vibiana, and in 1996 it was decided to build at another site. The Cathedral of Saint Vibiana was sold to to a developer in 1999, who transformed it into a performing arts complex called Vibiana (seen above).

In 1996, then Cardinal Roger Mahony (before he was ousted due to his silence regarding priest molestation) revealed that the new cathedral would be named the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, a title that had already approved by the Pope in 1945 when plans for the reconstruction of St. Vibiana's went unfulfilled. Cardinal Mahony's decision to rebuild the cathedral in “elaborate and post-modern architecture” was not met with universal approval. It was argued that the expense to build this cathedral was “unnecessary, overly-elaborate and money could have been better spent on social programs.” It was, of course, built and opened its doors in 2002.

The cathedral was designed by Rafael Moneo, a Pritzker-prize-winning architect from Spain. Speaking of doors, the bronze doors and the statue of the Virgin Mary over the entrance were designed by Robert Graham, a local California sculptor and husband of actress Angelica Houston."

For the whole story (with photos, of course), click on the link.
