This course will discuss Durham Cathedral through the lens of its being a repository of the history of the British Isles, from the arrival of Christianity to the present day. We will do so by looking at the artefacts and documents contained in the cathedral, by considering their provenance, examining the saints commemorated in the cathedral and the site’s connections with Scotland, Rome and mainland Europe in the Middle Ages. The wondrous aesthetic shall also be discussed and illustrated.

So we can continue to support our students, we are working towards putting this course online, by setting up live seminars that students can join through Collaborate - a tool for online meetings that is similar to making video calls.
Students joining our online courses would need a reliable broadband connection, and access to a computer, laptop or tablet with sound and a microphone.
