Description

This session explores the interplay of power between Durham cathedral priory, the bishops of Durham and the cult of St Cuthbert. The overlapping chronologies and interests of the cathedral, the cult and the bishops, and the interplay between them in different periods, have shaped the history of the north east of England and provide a fascinating opportunity to explore the tensions and issues which the presence of three such powerful entities create.
