Re: iconodules
It seems fair to refer to Wren's London parish church designs (1670s to 1680s) as the paradigm for subsequent 'American' Protestant Churches. St. Paul's (Anglican) Cathedral, Wren's most prominent/iconic London church, however, reenacts St. Peter's (Roman Catholic) Basilica at Rome. And then, St. Paul's Cathedral is subsequently reenacted by the U.S. Capitol.
