Keys to History

Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur Cathedral, now called Marie-Reine-du-Monde, about 1910. Built in successive stages starting in 1870, the new Catholic cathedral of the archdiocese symbolized eloquently the powerful "ultramontane" ties with the Vatican. The cathedral is, in fact, a reduced scale replica of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome.
