Canterbury Cathedral created this special podcast series during lockdown to give you a sense of what makes the site so special and to learn something of its unique and colourful history.
UNESCO World Heritage Site, Seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and The Mother Church of the Worldwide Anglican Communion, the Cathedral has been a place of worship for 1,400 years. This podcast will give you an insight into the events and people who have helped to shape and mould it, the moments it has witnessed, and how what you see at the Cathedral today reflects all the people and ideas that have gone before.
The series celebrates the Cathedral’s history and heritage, art and architecture, as well as the personal experiences of those living and working on site today. Particular highlights from the series include the episodes on the Ancestors of Christ stained glass windows, the Black Prince, and the work of the Cathedral’s medieval masons.
All episodes streaming now on the Canterbury Cathedral website.
