Pittsburgh"s Shadyside Presbyterian Church, completed in 1890, is one of the best Richardsonian Romanesque structures not designed by H. H. Richardson himself. A remarkable 1938 transformation of the sanctuary introduced a liturgically complex worship space. Surprisingly, it also brought explicit Christian symbolism to a church in the Reformed tradition that did not display a Cross inside until a decade later. This book explores the symbolic meaning of the architectural arrangement, liturgical furnishings, religious sculpture and artistic expression on both the exterior and the interior of this historic building.

Proceeds from the sale benefit the church's Building Community Fund.
