Ecclesiastical Piracy?

The university's pretension to great age has led it to copy, or at least to draw undue inspiration from, a number of buildings of antiquity. The foremost example is probably the University Chapel (below left), constructed in 1925. When I arrived at Princeton, I was repeatedly told that this was "a two-thirds scale copy of King's College Chapel at Cambridge" (below right, completed in 1515). Whether the Princeton Chapel is a copy or not, the reader must judge for himself. It is certainly not innovative, and was 400 years behind the times when new!
