A New City - Welcome to Glasgow, Farewell Dundee
National Myths and Glasgow Cathedral
We also visited the Glasgow Cathedral. The existence of the cathedral is a wonder in and of itself. Few cathedrals survived the reformation. The rarity of the structure makes it precious. The architecture is striking; the ornate stained glass, gothic styled arches, and Roman influenced hallways all come together to create an awe-inspiring building. I tend to forget that these structures were all created in the name of God. In modern times, it is hard to imagine such money being poured into a building of worship. This really reinforces the everyday importance that the church played in history. Though I personally agree with the Reformation movement, I am glad that this building survived as a historical reminder of how Catholicism once ruled the land.
