It is probably fair to say that the Medieval Cathedrals are the ultimate expression of British Architecture.
A product of unshakable Christian faith, they represented for many the concept of the Heavenly Jerusalem on Earth as described in the Book of Revelation.
We shall examine the concept of The Great Church and its development during the medieval period in the first session and then go on to consider three Cathedrals on the western side of the country. In addition to the religious significance of these buildings we shall also consider the wider social and political dimension.
No previous knowledge is required and the course is suitable for those new to the field.
