Abstract In October 1998 the Melbourne Archdiocese celebrated the 150 year anniversary of the appointment of James Alipius Goold as Catholic Bishop (later Archbishop) of Melbourne. Only a year earlier it had celebrated the centenary of the consecration of St Patrick's Roman Catholic Cathedral, Melbourne. This paper is based largely on archival research. It explores Goold's role as patron of the arts, in particular his role in commissioning and supporting William Wardell as architect of St Patrick's Cathedral. Further, it documents for the first time how monies were collected, and the manner in which such an enormous project was financed. Given the paucity of literature on nineteenth century patronage generally, and of church architecture in particular, this paper opens up a fruitful area for exploration and discussion. In the end, it is clear that a far richer picture of religious architecture in Australia can be gained by adopting a broader perspective that includes patronage as a crucial part of a more general discussion of church architecture.
