Religious Architecture

This cathedral in Berlin, called Berliner Dom, incorporates various styles of architecture including Neoclassical, Renaissance, and Baroque features, and has ultimately serves as a Protestant church (Sacred Destinations). As in the other image of St. Paul's Cathedral, its dome-shaped top may likewise be representative of many faiths. The faiths under this roof have been predominantly Christian (Sacred Destinations), yet this also seems to say that the journey toward the heavens is not of one idea or faith. The various details of the structure appear to place emphasis on this as well, as there is even a monument to King Frederick William III on the left of the image. The variations in the cathedral's architecture thus question the simplicity of faith to take believers on a journey. Is there simply one way to reach for the the heavens?
