Tom Bree Slideshow Talk: The Cosmos in Stone – Saturday 3 March, 7pm

The Influence of Cosmology in the Design of Wells Cathedral

This talk will look at the underlying geometric design of the ground plan of Wells Cathedral and the way in which it embodies a Jerusalem centred cosmological symbolism that is still used today in the symbolic layout of a Freemason lodge room. Tom Bree is a renowned geometer-artist, teacher and writer. Please join us for this fascinating talk!

Gothic Cathedrals are often looked upon symbolically as architectural images of the Heavenly Jerusalem – (the Heavenly City described at the end of the final book of the Bible). So to enter into such a cathedral is to ‘walk among the stars’. It is where God’s Will is done ‘on Earth as it is in Heaven’ – a place in which ‘the Morning Star rises in your hearts’.
