Excerpt from The True Principles of Pointed or Christian Architecture: Set Forth in Two Lectures Delivered at St. Marie's, Oscott

One of the greatest defects of St. Paul's, London, is its fictitious dome. The dome that is seen is not the dome of the church, but a mere construction for effect. At St. Peter's the dome is the actual covering of the building, and is therefore constructed in that respect on the true principle but, as will be perceived by the annexed section, the upper part of St. Paul's is mere imposing show, constructed at a vast expense without any legitimate reason.
