Encyclopedia > List of largest cathedrals in the world

There are a number of factors to be considered in determining which churches are the largest - total square footage, cubic footage, seating capacity, surface area, height, and others. There is also the question of whether or not to include just the cathedral, or also the chapter house, cloisters, or any other parts of the complex, in the calculations.
