#7: For The Greater Glory Of God

Update: 2023-05-26


In this episode we will learn how, with the appointment of a new bishop, came a renewed ambition to complete the cathedral. We’ll hear how the architects, builders and craftsmen retuned to work on further enlarging and enhancing the cathedral. During this third phase of building, an extraordinary transformation would take place, that would lead to the much-extended and sumptuously decorated cathedral that we know today.
