Church Project Theorem: Old vs. Older Churches

Generally speaking, the older the church, the higher the chance of it being ornate. Easy, right?

Problem is, sometimes a parish can be too old. You know, built back in the day before they really had the chutzpah (or the resources) to try to reach the heavens with their construction. There’s no set timeline, but the truly ornate period in this area tends to fall between the late 1800s and the early 1900s. Anything earlier is really a crapshoot. Thus, old is good, but even older is not necessarily better.
