Glasgow's thirteenth-century cathedral is the city's oldest building and one of Scotland's top tourist destinations. The cathedral remains an active congregation of the Church of Scotland and serves as the focus for many events of national significance. It is, however, many years since a comprehensive overview of the cathedral's history has been published. The standard work, The Book of Glasgow Cathedral, was compiled more than 120 years ago by George Eyre-Todd. Since then, the interior of the building has been completely transformed, thanks largely to the efforts of the Society of Friends of Glasgow Cathedral, founded in 1936 by the Rev. A. Nevile Davidson with the aims of ""adorning and beautifying"" the building and encouraging research into its history. To mark the eighty-fifth anniversary of the society, this new book traces the story of its achievements and presents the fruits of scholarship undertaken during recent decades, combining essays and lectures on the history of Glasgow Cathedral by eminent historians of the past with new and hitherto unpublished research. Where Mortal and Immortal Meet will be an invaluable resource for future generations of historians and for all those who have a love for one of Scotland's most significant architectural treasures.
