Title:Trinity Church, Boston - Eagle
Notes:Trinity Church, Boston, was completed in 1877. Its architect was H. H. Richardson, and numerous artists and craftspeople contributed to the interior design. In 1971, Trinity was designated a National Historic Landmark for "possessing "exceptional value in commemorating or illustrating the history of the United States." The eagle is a prominent symbol in scripture and Christian tradition, and is the symbol for the evangelist John. This representation evokes Christ as triumphant, resurrected and ruler over all earthly kingdoms (crown.)
