Each person entering the monastery is required to pay a 2.5 pound maintenance sponsorship fee on the basis of the proposal. The staff at the entrance receive the visitors queuing up with a smile. At the same time, the charges are clearly written in multi-national languages (including Chinese) on the counter. It is quite rare for monasteries to adopt such a charging method. Walking into a cathedral that used to be a monastery, or being shocked by the huge space inside. Although we are not religious, every time we enter such a solemn and solemn religious place, there will be a shock of the soul. After a circle inside the cathedral, what we saw and heard still made us look at the cathedral in the small town of Bass. The huge stained glass windows bring a more sacred atmosphere to the church. The biggest feature of the church is the tall stained glass windows behind the main altar, which are said to depict 56 scenes in the life of Jesus Christ. In the Chinese introduction provided by the church, the life of Jesus Christ is described in great detail and concisely. Jesus was born 2000 years ago in the medieval town of Bethlehem in the Middle East. In the first 30 years of his life, he lived and worked in an ordinary family. Over the next three years, he traveled around to teach people the truth about God and to treat patients by Lake Galilee. He summoned 12 ordinary people to be his assistants. He was penniless and did not write a book. He had not commanded the army, nor had he ever held power. In his life, he never set foot on land 200 miles away. At the age of 33, he was crucified. " Such a concise "eulogy" really makes us feel a "blank" art. Of course, the other page of the introduction introduces the meaning of "the Resurrection of Jesus". Compared with the various religious propaganda we have seen, it seems that the above passage in our records is more distinctive. Founded in the seventh century and rebuilt in the twelfth and sixteenth centuries, the cathedral is said to be one of the largest vertical Gothic buildings in Western England. The Bass Monastery Church should attract the attention of tourists purely with its magnificent architectural carvings and majestic layout. In the church, we can see the main altar and organ in front of the choir stand. The walls around the church are embedded with various types of tombstones and sculptures. Although we can't understand them, the dense arrangement still gives us a sense of the long history and profound connotation of the church. In the church there is also a tomb of generous donors of the monastery, on which lies a figure sculpture, such layout is relatively rare.
The Bass Monastery clearly belongs to the Gothic style of the late Renaissance. Its exquisite glass paintings, religious stories and bright palaces are quite different from other churches. They are magnificent in shape and excellent in sculpture. It was once a Benedictine monastery in history and the largest vertical Gothic building in Western England.
Sitting in the monastery, listening to the priest reading the passages of the Bible, everyone was so devout and attentive that it was amazing that the whole person was surrounded by a sense of solemnity. Every side of the window inside was different and every side was beautiful. Looking up at those angels who are climbing the ladder, only their voices are echoing. If you want to have a dialogue with history, you still need to read more books.
It's right next to the Rome Bath, free of charge, but volunteers will ask for donations. Not a particularly tall monastery.
