Why should the beautiful die?

St. Michael the Archangel Church, Munhall

This Slovak church is no longer used, but the building is still kept in good condition.

The Romanesque façade, with its colorful inlays, is something extraordinary even in a region of extraordinary churches.

The relief of Ss. Cyril and Methodius, apostles to the Slavs, shows more than a little Art Deco influence.

Until a few years ago, the tower held up a fine statue of St. Joseph the Worker, one of the last major works of the great Frank Vittor. It has been moved to St. Maximilian Kolbe parish, where you can see it at eye level.

  1. I attended a wedding in this church when it was still open. The interior had a very subtle gradation of blue to turquoise tiles on the walls, giving an almost underwater feeling. It felt very much influenced by Vienna Secession architecture
