- Keep Please read w:en:Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. It's exact replica of old design. No new authorship is involved. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 15:00, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
- I know history of this cathedral, not only from this article. I think there is no difference if this is a replica or not. Architects of this new builiding, (including Aleksey Denisov) has Copyrights. But I don't know precise how it looks like in Russia's law.
- Keep The author is en:Konstantin Thon, who died in 1881. Building a new building from old plans doesn't mean that you get 132+ years PMA of copyright. Nyttend (talk) 22:20, 9 November 2013 (UTC)
- Keep I'm inclined to agree with Eugene on this one. While there is no doubt creativity and talent involved in building a replica building, the elements we see in these photographs are replicas of Thon's work. I lean towards thinking this does not cross the threshold of originality. --Skeezix1000 (talk) 15:31, 2 December 2013 (UTC)
