about Glasgow Cathedral
Glasgow Cathedral is an impressive medieval creation, perhaps most remarkable for surviving the Protestant Reformation of 1560 in such an excellence state of preservation. After this event, Glasgow Cathedral was used to house several parish kirks.
One of the earliest mentions of Glasgow Cathedral relates to Saint Kentigern - often known as Mungo - who is said to have been buried on the site in the seventh century. Whilst most of Glasgow Cathedral dates to the thirteenth century, some of its earlier parts were built in the twelfth century.
