Abstract

This paper looks at the social composition of the Cathedral Church of St Mungo in Glasgow. As one of the very few remaining physical features of Glasgow’s medieval past and is, as claimed by Iain Macnair, ‘the finest remaining building of medieval Scotland’.1 This impressive building, 283 feet long, 62 feet wide with a spire of 250 feet, has withstood the many threats to its continued existence, notably during the Reformation, which brought about the near complete destruction of other cathedrals including St Andrews and Elgin.
