About Glasgow Cathedral Festival: Sense of Place Tour

After lunch, hear a talk about how traditionally building layout appears to have been chosen with regard to sensual experience of certain surroundings.

Consider how subtle influences manifest through intuitive association with the form of things, experience them with respect to geology, topography and the building.

Consider how features, in particular the altar and saint’s tomb, are located in relation to them and how heavenly and earthly influences are brought together to facilitate ritual.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Glasgow Cathedral Festival: Sense of Place Tour are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
