Here, ill just describe it..

STP is used to prevent ethernet frames from looping when redundant paths are provided between switches.  Plain and simple, thats what it does.

Say you have 3 switches, all connected to one another, in a pyramid shape.

If you did not have STP, you could loop an ethernet frame, due to the fact a frame has the ability to come back to itself.  STP creates a spanning tree of interfaces that forward or block frames as it receives them.  STP will pick what interfaces should forward, and which ones shouldnt, that way the frames are not looped.

You can also use STP for redundancy in the sense of connecting 2 ports between each switch, and letting STP block one of them.  Granted, etherchannelling is a much better solution, you can use STP for it.
