    Stories from St Pauls: The Art of St Paul's

    St Paul’s Cathedral is a place of worship and a tourist destination, but it’s also a place to experience and enjoy art in many mediums from different time periods, created by an array of talented artists and craftspeople like Grinling Gibbons, Sir James Thornhill and Henry Moore, to name just a few. More recently, contemporary interventions from Yoko Ono, Rebecca Horn, Antony Gormley, Gerry Judah and Bill Viola have enriched the pattern of worship in the Cathedral. Discover the many facets to the art on display in St Paul’s in this latest podcast episode.

    Produced and presented by Douglas Anderson.

    *Please note that as of June 2021, William Holman Hunt’s ‘The Light of the World’ painting is not on display due to ongoing building works in the North Transept. It will return for display in Spring 2022.

    Stories from St Pauls: Wellington and Nelson - Military Masters

    Stories from St Pauls: Wellington and Nelson - Military Masters

    Admiral Horatio Nelson and Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington are forever associated with their most famous military battles. For Nelson, at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, in which he lost his life, and for Wellington, in 1815 at the Battle of Waterloo. Perhaps surprisingly, the two men only met once briefly in 1805, but in death they have lain at rest beside each other for over 150 years in the Crypt of St Paul’s.

    Encountering Jesus - Rachel Treweek (2021)

    Bishop Rachel says that encounter and relationship are at the heart of faith and of life. At a time when ‘social distancing’ is our daily reality, she calls us to celebrate community, intimacy and the discovery of ourselves and each other through close encounter with God and our neighbour - the adventure of faith that Jesus calls us to - and to find hope even in times of darkness.

    Rachel Treweek is the Bishop of Gloucester, was the first woman to become a Diocesan Bishop in the Church of England, and was previously a paediatric speech and language therapist. She is the author of Encounters: Jesus, connection and story, past present and future (DLT 2020).
