The Cathedral Church of Christ, Blessed Mary the Virgin and St Cuthbert of Durham, usually known as Durham Cathedral and home of the Shrine of St Cuthbert, is a cathedral in the city of Durham, England, the seat of the Anglican Bishop of Durham. The bishopric dates from 995, with the present cathedral being founded in AD 1093. The cathedral is regarded as one of the finest examples of Norman architecture and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with nearby Durham Castle, which faces it across Palace Green.  Wikipedia

Durhamin katedraali, koko nimeltään Kristuksen, siunatun Neitsyt Marian ja Durhamin pyhän Cuthbertin katedraalikirkko, on romaaninen poikkilaivabasilika Durhamissa, Koillis-Englannissa. Katedraali on rakennettu vuosina 1093–1490 ja se on edelleen alueensa kristittyjen keskuspaikka. Durhamin katedraalia pidetään yhtenä hienoimmista normannien rakentamista katedraaleista, ja se on Unescon maailmanperintökohde yhdessä läheisen Durhamin linnan kanssa.   Wikipedia
