The Cathedral is one of two unlockable floors following The Womb / Utero / Scarred Womb, the other being Sheol. After defeating Mom's Heart, an Angel room may spawn containing a beam of light leading upwards to the Cathedral. Unlocking and defeating It Lives will always spawn a beam of light leading to the Cathedral, as well as a trapdoor leading to Sheol.
The Cathedral only has one floor, and the boss is always Isaac.
