There was a time when burials were done, if possible, on an east-west axis, The idea was to rise facing eastward on Judgement Day.

Christ was expected to come to people from the direction of the rising sun.

The tradition was to build churches so that the people faced east. This is a tradition that is maintained in the Byzantine churches (both Catholic and Orthodox) today. However, if a church was purchased that did not face east, the area where the altar/holy table is was simply labeled "liturgical east."

This tradition in the West was dropped simply because it was not always possible to build a church facing east. This was due to either the layout of the property or, in some cases, the local restrictions.

I've taken many guided tours of some of the older Churches in Europe, a church would normaly be built so that the people would be facing East, however I've been to 30+ churches and have not noticed this being any kind of a majority, in fact the direction the church faces seems random

Quite true, in 1.8.1 Sanctuary, the sun rises in the North. On prerelease4 1.9 World4, it rises in the east. As for the maps, well one of them has the compass wrong

Thank matey ....its a couple of weeks off yet

have some finishing touches and buttresses, confessional, priests office etc to do

also we have saved the Alter for sarianna to do, so com in whenever your ready sarianna

Underneath the Cathedral in the Demon section we are completely replicating the Cathedral upside down using Netherack, slabs and lava in the windows

This is a huge project because we worked out we need to remove 80 x80 x 70 blocks ... a mere 488000 >< of which I have done approx 51000 so far

Skoville is also working on a cool project round the border of the cathedral .. so lots going on

Its amazing to see what other people's texture packs make it look like .. not too far of mine but here are a few screenies of my own
