Famous Churches and Cathedrals of Britain, Part II  

Following Part I offered in the winter semester, we continue this spring with more segments from the exciting PBS series Secrets of Britain’s Great Cathedrals, narrated by Simon Callow. These segments provide an up-close view of three ancient British cathedrals that have dominated the English landscape for centuries, reflecting England’s long and turbulent history. The videos feature interviews with historians and experts, soaring visuals of cathedral architecture, and explanations of their historical settings. First, we will visit Durham Cathedral, where construction began in 1093. The Durham edifice has long been regarded as one of the finest examples of Norman architecture in Europe. Next we will spend some time at the famous Lincoln Cathedral. Lincoln’s construction commenced in 1072 and extended into the early Gothic period. Finally, we will visit several cathedrals across the length of Wales, to see and appreciate the variety of their styles.
