Durham Cathedral: Shrine of St. Cuthbert (d.687)

Shrine of St. Cuthbert (d.687)

A simple stone slab marked Cuthbertus replaces the elaborate and richly jewelled medieval shrine of St. Cuthbert (d.687), destroyed in 1540 during the Reformation. The stones around the slab are part of the original construction.
