In the streets of the city, it is easy to see the tall Cathedral of Glasgow in the distance, surrounded by statues of religious figures, behind which is the hillside green space, bathed itself in the rising blue sky and white clouds. The cathedral, which was built in the 6th century A.D., is the only oldest building in Glasgow. It is said that it took more than 300 years to complete the construction of the cathedral. How long will it take? After that, the cathedral has survived the devastation of the religious revolution several times and has been fortunately preserved to this day. Of course, people can still see that the cathedral is damaged to varying degrees everywhere, and even some places can clearly see the ruins and broken walls of that year. We walked into the free and open cathedral, which has been visited by many tourists. The cathedral is also one of the most popular tourist attractions for visitors to Glasgow. The interior of the cathedral is very grand and tall. The arch wall formed by ancient columns extends the roof of the cathedral to high altitude. The wooden roof is inlaid with various national emblems. The walls of the church are surrounded by tombstones and sculptures. Many visitors who have studied religion are watching these tombstones carefully, but we can only see a macroscopic scene. The most different thing from the general cathedral is that the glass windows of the cathedral seem to be quite plain. In the center of the church, the cross-section is divided into two parts by a stone altar fence decorated with seven pairs of stone statues, which is said to symbolize the "seven sins" in Catholic doctrine. We began to refer to the text introduction, looking for a long time did not understand, and then asked the staff to get advice, is to see a bit of fame. There is also a large basement in the church, which also has an arch wall, with a sacred tombstone surrounded by red ropes. The tombstone belongs to St. Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow. It is said that at the end of the 6th century, this Saint established and named Glasgow here. Of course, it also makes Glasgow Cathedral a witness of the city's history. On the murals behind the tombstones and on the church carpets, guides usually introduce visitors to the four wonders of the church - "birds that can't fly, trees that can't grow, bells that can't ring and fish that can't swim. It seems rare that such a meaningful cathedral is so old.
On the second day of arrival at Glasgow, I got up early because of jet lag. I walked 2 km from BNB to Glasgow Cathedral, but the door had not been opened yet. I took a rest at the church door and waited for it to open. It's still cold in Scotland in summer, and there's a fine rain in the sky. When the door opens and enters Glasgow Cathedral, it's shocking and beautiful. It's worth visiting because it's so cold that it's worth waiting for an hour in the cold wind. Painted glass windows are also beautiful!
Upon arrival, visit Glasgow Cathedral. The Cathedral built in the 12th century has a history of more than 800 years and still stands here today. Weathered buildings are dignified and magnificent. Entering the interior shocked everyone. Stone, wood, carving, stained glass, relief, everything here is exquisite. Figure 9 shows the mausoleum of Mungo, the ancestor of Glasgow's theology. Strong recommendation [strong]
The scenery of the university is not as impressive as that of the city. The piano sounds from head to foot, penetrating from outside to inside, infecting the charm of religion, the majesty of the buildings, and the people who have been standing there for so many years, forming a brilliant and dazzling painting when they are young.
What impresses people is Glasgow Cathedral, which is not only unique in shape, but also exquisite in glass design and beautiful in color. The solemn atmosphere makes people calm, and there is an impulse to rethink their merits and demerits and rebuild themselves. The Scottish men, dressed in checkered skirts and playing musical instruments at the entrance, cooperate with the unique architecture and show Scottish style.
In downtown Glasgow, about 10 minutes'walk from St. George's Square. The appearance shows a light gray with a sense of historical precipitation. The church was built in the 11th century A.D. during the Southern Song and Jin Dynasties in China. Think about how few buildings of the Song and Jin Dynasties still exist in China. What's more, Britain's later religious reforms destroyed countless Catholic churches. Therefore, Glasgow, a large Catholic church, can escape the disaster of religious reform, probably comparable to the story of the Confucian Temple of Qufu escaping the disaster of the Cultural Revolution. The church was built at the site of St. Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow, and the tomb of St. Mungo himself was in the church. Maybe that's why the church has remained intact to this day? There is a religious museum not far from the church. Friends interested in religion can visit it.
Glasgow Cathedral - "Scotland's only medieval Gothic cathedral that preserves its original appearance until now, after 300 years of completion, is a Gothic model of architecture before the Reformation, and the only Scottish cathedral that can survive after the Reformation in Britain. Glasgow's patron saint Mungo was buried in the tomb, surrounded by seven pairs of stone statues, representing "seven sins". The dense pillars surround the tombstone of San Mungo with extraordinary momentum.
Glasgow is one of the most typical Scottish cities with a huge street view and a magnificent appearance. It belongs to one of the surviving Victorian cities in Britain. Glasgow Cathedral and street artists who can see graffiti and music everywhere make people happy.~
Glasgow Cathedral looks very magnificent and magnificent. It is a very historic, typical Gothic style church. The religious printed glass windows inside are very high and shocking. When we went there, the old priest was teaching the new priest to play the organ, and we could feel a special sense of religious solemnity. It's a good place.
