At the website for Best College Reviews, where apparently no one ever looked up the meaning of the word "cathedral," they nonetheless have assembled what they deem the 30 most beautiful campus churches. I would quibble with putting the Cathedral of Toledo and Santiago de Compostela on the list, just because they are adjacent to a campus and have some association with that school: They are not campus churches. But, it is nice to look at pretty pictures of buildings consecrated to worship. As Robert Louis Stevenson said, "Mankind was never so happily inspired as when it made a cathedral."
