Christchurch cathedral, Dublin, Dublin county, Leinster
Christ Church Cathedral (The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, commonly known as Christ Church, Cathedral of the United Dioceses of Dublin and Glendalough and Metropolitical Cathedral of the United Provinces of Dublin and Cashel), an Anglican cathedral in Dublin, is the older of the city's two medieval, cathedrals of the Anglican Church of Ireland, the other being St. Patrick's Cathedral.
Christ Church has reflected in its architecture, administration and worship, and in the people who made those things possible, the changing face of Ireland. It has experienced the trauma of the Reformation, and, centuries later, of disestablishment and of political independence.
The original church was built in 1038 by the Danish Viking king of Dublin, then completely rebuilt in 1171. In 1562, the vault of the church collapsed, demolishing a large part of the church itself, including the south wall. The cathedral was extensively renovated in Victorian times, with additonal renovations taking place mostly between 1980 and 1982.
