The Chapels of Notre Dame

By Lawrence S. Cunningham
Photography by Matt Cashore

The Chapels of Notre Dame celebrates the university's unique identity as a Catholic academic community where faith is treasured and a life of worship and prayer is seen as a hallmark of education. This stunning, large-format collection of over two hundred full-color photographs brings to life the fifty-seven chapels located throughout Notre Dame's campus, many of which are tucked away in little-known settings.
