3 Greek Orthodox
Church of England
The Church of England cathedral, St Paul's, in Colmore Row, was built as a church and completed in 1715, designed in the then-fashionable Baroque style by architect Thomas Archer. It gained cathedral status in 1905, when the diocese of Birmingham was created (Birmingham was made a city in 1889).
Built of brick and faced with stone, it has windows by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, and is claimed to be the smallest English cathedral.
St Chad's, on St. Chad's Queensway, is the Catholic cathedral, and has a neo-gothic design by Augustus Pugin. It opened in 1841.
Much of the work is by Hardman & Co.
There is also a Greek Orthodox cathedral, the Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God and St Andrew at Arthur Place, Summer Hill. It was formerly a CoE church.
