Glasgow Cathedral Reviews
Awe Inspiring Feb 27, 2008
The first stone-built Glasgow Cathedral was dedicated in the presence of King David I in 1136. The present building was consecrated in 1197. Since that same period the Cathedral has never been unroofed and the worship of God has been carried out within its walls for more than 800 years. The Cathedral has a regular and active congregation, and no visitor should leave the city without making a visit.The ground was consecrated for Christian burial by St. Ninian in 397 A.D. The Lower Church houses the tomb of St. Mungo (also called Kentigern) who died in 603 A.D.
Glasgow Cathedral's 13th century tower is the last remaining intact tower on a Scottish mediaeval church.
