Inside the Impressive Cathedral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul

In my College of Charleston course, "Beyond the Grave: What Old Cemeteries Tell and Teach the Living," I enjoy taking my students to this beautiful church not far from campus on Coming Street.

It is the Cathedral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul, which was completed in 1815.  It is Episcopalian (formerly Anglican) and has two names because, in 1949, St. Paul's merged with St. Luke's Church on Charlotte Street.
