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.
