The Cathedral Arts Project is the leading nonprofit provider of quality, comprehensive and ongoing instruction in the visual and performing arts for elementary and middle school students in Duval County. The driving force behind all CAP programs is the belief that the arts matter – they provide essential skills, like creative thinking. A cathedral is a church that contains the cathedra (Latin for '"seat"') of a bishop, thus serving as the central church of a diocese, conference, or episcopate. Churches with the function of "cathedral" are usually specific to those Christian denominations with an episcopal hierarchy, such as the Catholic, Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, and some Lutheran churches.

Located off the newly restored Bishop’s Courtyard on the grounds of Houston’s historic Christ Church Cathedral, The Cathedral Bookstore was founded in by dedicated volunteers with a passion for reading.

Siena Cathedral (Italian: Duomo di Siena) is a medieval church in Siena, Italy, dedicated from its earliest days as a Roman Catholic Marian church, and now dedicated to the Assumption of Mary.. It was the episcopal seat of the Diocese of Siena, and from the 15th century that of the Archdiocese of Siena. It is now the seat of the Archdiocese of Siena-Colle di Val d'Elsa-Montalcino. This book offers a succinct and edifying portrait of the art, architecture, and outreach of this legendary New York institution. The author does a fine job explaining the 14 bays of the nave which celebrate the contributions of artists, athletes, lawyers, government leaders, social workers, laborers, and others.

Having said this, I must say I agree that the Cro-Magnons depicted a dichotomist world of binary oppositions--archetypes in other words.
