Church Beggar, Russia,  ca 1900,  recolor (c) richenda fairhurst
Abbey Pages 
 ~Holy Isles, Market Crosses, a Crypt, and more....

The Photochrom Photograph collections displayed on these pages are dated between 1890 and 1900 and available from the Library of Congress.  The collections include pictures of abbeys, cathedrals, and churches, and also castles, city gates, bridges, harbors, and more.

The Abbey Pages are devoted to abbeys, cathedrals, churches, and other things sacred or religious.  Scroll down for Abbey Page links.  For photographs of Castles and Gates, see my castle pages.  For people in traditional costume, see my costume pages, and for everything else, click here.  

I wish I had time to fill these pages with information about each abbey, grotto, tomb, shrine, church and monastery pictured.  But realistically, I just don't.  Occasionally, however, an abbey will have a link to more information.  I will also work to interlink these photographs with my Monastic Pages.  If you want more information about any of these photographs, just google it.  Post any info in my comments section if you like.
