Overview


Since the last quarter of the 19th century, dozens of religious congregations have made their homes in Cleveland Heights. They have been Presbyterian, United Methodist, Evangelical, Roman Catholic, Jewish (Conservative, Orthodox, and Egalitarian\traditional), Unitarian Universalist, Greek Orthodox, Baptist, Disciples of Christ, Church of Christ, Lutheran, Christian Science, Episcopalian, African Methodist Episcopal, and Congregational and now also include a wide array of community and nondenominational churches. Sponsored by established congregations, encouraged by real estate developers and public officials, and usually welcomed by residents, churches, synagogues, and temples have fostered the suburb's growth, sometimes maintaining and sometimes changing Cleveland Heights neighborhoods. Their houses of worship, ranging from modest renovated storefronts to stately cathedrals, have enriched the city's landscape; their religious pluralism has nurtured ethnic, economic, and racial diversity, as well as controversy and conflict; their calls to action have sometimes aroused the community's conscience. Religious congregations, in short, have helped to sustain the vitality of Cleveland Heights.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Cleveland Heights is a city populated by only about 50,000 people, but according to author Marian Morton, this small Cleveland suburb serves as a microcosm of religious America. To demonstrate her point, the author of this Images of America entry offers views of the churches and synagogues of numerous congregations: Presbyterian, United Methodist, Evangelical, Catholic, Jewish (Conservative, Orthodox, and Egalitarian/Traditional), Baptist, Unitarian Universalist, Greek Orthodox, Christian Science, Disciple of Christ, Lutheran, Church of Christ, Episcopalian, African Methodist, and even then the list is incomplete. A striking portrait of religious diversity.
