While steeples may vary in height, intricacy, and detail, most churches bear one—But why is this the case?
Steeples have a long history with churches and have been a vital aspect of church architecture since the conversion of Constantine the Great, the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity. As far back as the year 312, when Constantine’s proclamation made Christianity the official religion of the Roman State, steeples have been an integral part of the church and Christian identity as a whole.
When considering buying a steeple or cupola, it is important to understand the differences in the materials that are used to build these structures. The differences in materials will ultimately change the look of your structure. Fiberglass and wood are the most popular materials used in steeples today. In addition to these materials, brick, stone, and even copper are commonly used.
Baptistries are crucial pieces to the overall production of a church and vital to ceremonies performed within. Available in a variety of shapes, sizes, portability options and more, baptistries are able to be customized in order to match the look and feel of your church.
The architectural structure referred to as a cupola is most often found atop churches and other formal buildings. This unique piece can be designed in a variety of styles, materials and sizes that will best compliment your structure.
