Recently, the team hired to conduct the controlled demolition of the fire-ravaged Immanuel Chapel at Virginia Theological Seminary requested prayers before beginning their work.  The dean, VTS staff and demolition team went into the chapel ruin for the devotions.  As a result, these new, most current images of the devastation were available via the VTS website.

               This is the Nave, looking toward the sacristy, with the High Altar space to the upper right.

I really want to post the landscape rendering of how the chapel ruin will be transformed into the 1881 Memorial Garden. However, I suspect copyright laws prevent me from lifting an image from the legal documents filed by the seminary to the City of Alexandria's Board of Architectural Review. So here's a link to the document:
