Last week I had the good fortune to go to Cincinnati to give a talk on architect Edward Schulte, who lived from 1890 to 1975. He started out as a traditional church designer and lived long enough to branch into certain modern tendencies while always insisting on the theological nature of the church building. Even if some of his designs are often a bit modern for some people’s taste, he always insisted on using real stone, sculpture, painting and symbolism. He designed nearly 80 churches and chapels, including the cathedrals in La Crosse (WI), Lexington (KY), and Salina (KS), as well as the sumptuous1958 renovation of Cincinnati’s St. Peter in Chains Cathedral. A Cincinnati photographer, Robert Flischel, put together this fine short video of some of Schulte’s churches in Cincinnati that span nearly 50 years of his work. Enjoy!
