Durham Cathedral
The see of Durham was founded at Lindisfarne in 635, moved to Chester-le-Street in 883, and finally to Durham in 997.
Durham is a Cathedral of the New Foundation, in the sense that before the Reformation it was a Benedictine Cathedral Priory being staffed by a prior and monks. At the Reformation it was refounded as a secular cathedral being staffed by a dean and canons
Durham Cathedral is properly known as The Cathedral Church of Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary at Durham
Please note: I have normally in the past divided a cathedral into sections (transepts, choir etc) and listed the monuments in their correct places but I was unable to correlate them in every case with the entries for the Cathedral in Pevsner's Buildings of England, County Durham, which is selective in listing monuments. I have - for the time being - listed some monuments in a Locations not Found section. There are also other monuments which will be included later.

The Galilee Chapel
Also known as the Galilee Porch
The Venerable Bede 

Bede (672/3-735) w
as a Benedictine monk at the monastery at Jarrow, then in the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Northumbria, but he also travelled to other monasteries over the British Isles. He was an author, teacher and scholar, his most famous work being The Ecclesiastical History of the English People,  which is still in print today, even available as an e-book! Bede died at his monastery at Jarrow and was buried there but his bones were moved to Durham in 1020 and initially buried in the tomb of St Cuthbert of Lindisfarne. They were later moved to a shrine in the Galilee Chapel, which was destroyed at the Restoration, although his bones were reburied in this chapel in the ground; they were exhumed in 1831 and reburied in the tomb shown above.

Pevsner in The Buildings of England: County Durham makes one of his all too frequent vague statements about  the slab and its inscription on this tomb. The following from the Victoria County History: Durham would seem to be the most accurate explanation. After the shrine was demolished and Bede's bones reburied in the Galilee Chapel, as mentioned above, a blue marble slab - with no inscription - was placed above the burial site in 1542. John Cosin (1594-1672), previously a canon of the cathedral and who was Bishop of Durham from 1660 until his death,  composed an epitaph which was hung over the grave; the original itself no longer exists but there is a copy in the Cathedral library. When Bede's bones were exhumed in 1831, again as mentioned above, the last two lines of Cosin's epitaph were cut into the slab:


Here are buried the bones of the Venerable Bede

So the slab we see today dates from the mid 16th century but the inscription, although composed earlier, is Victorian.

Right bottom:  In the back ground is the tomb Bishop Thomas Langley (c. 1363 - 1437). He was elected Bishop of Durham in 1406, a position he held until his death; he may be considered as much a politician, for example, holding the post of Lord Chancellor twice, as a high ranking churchman. The link gives a short but interesting biography. His large tomb (a little foreshortened in the photograph) is quite plain but has steps on either side leading to an altar.  When built the whole structure blocked the Great West door but doors on either side of the tomb were cut through in the mid 19th century. In the middle ground is the ledger stone of Dorothy Grey (1660), which may be seen more clearly in the photograph above. In the fore ground is a wooden carving of The Annunciation by Polish sculptor, Jósef Pyrz.

Also: Dean Allington (1955) no illustration available

Meaning of Venerable
The word venerable has three fairly distinct  meanings:

1. Referring to a person who has earned much respect, especially because of age, wisdom, or character. The related verb is to venerate.
2. In the Anglican Church it is a title given to a archdeacon. An archdeacon is a post rather than an order: an archdeacon must be an ordained priest.
3. In the Roman Catholic Church it is a title given to a worthy dead person who has not (yet) achieved beatification or sainthood.

In the case of Bede, definition 1 or 3 would seem to apply.

Nave & Aisles

The Nevilles, Barons of Raby
In 1417 the Nevilles were granted permission to build a chantry chapel between two bays near the east end of South Aisle. Some parts of this structure now remain, although the tombs have now been displaced

It contained tombs of Ralph, 2nd Baron Neville of Raby & Alice, and that of his son, John, 3rd Baron Neville of Raby & Maud
Ralph, 2nd Baron Neville of Raby (1367) and his wife, Alice de Audley (1358)

The Battle of Neville's Cross (17th October 1346) was a battle in the Second Scots War of Independence
The tomb above  of alabaster, now very mutilated, is now situated between the pillars of the second arch of the south arcade of the nave.
King Philip VI (of Valois), the French King had asked King David II of Scotland to fulfill the terms of the Auld Alliance and invade England in order that English
troops would be fighting on two fronts so weakening the English army in the Hundred Years War. King David obliged and ravaged the north of England for several weeks. However his army of 12,000 men was caught by surprise at Neville's Cross within site of the Cathedral. Ralph Neville was the leader of the English forces, which numbered half that of the Scots. The Scots were decidedly beaten with many of their leaders killed or taken prisoner - the latter included David II,  himself.
The battle was near an old Anglo-Saxon cross which Ralph Neville rebuilt in thanks for the victory
  John, 3rd Baron Neville of Raby (1388) and his wife Maud Percy before 1379)

This tomb is also of alabaster but, although the tomb chest is reasonably well preserved, the effigies are very mutilated. It is situated between the pillars of the third bar.
John Neville was, like is father, a soldier, being a captain under his father at the Battle of Neville's Cross. He fought in Aquitaine during the Hundred Years War. After the death of his first wife, Maud, he married Elizabeth Latimer.

The First Baron Neville of Raby (Ralph's father) was Ranulph Neville (1262-1331) (buried at Coverham Abbey, North Riding of Yorkshire) and the Fourth Baron (John's son) was Ralph,
 who was created the First Earl of Westmoreland (see Staindrop below for his monument)

Bishop Thomas Hatfield (1381)

Thomas Hatfield was Bishop of Durham from 1341 until his death. He was the last of the warrior bishops and fought in King Edward's division and the Battle of Crécy in 1346.

Hatfield College of the University of Durham is named after him.
The Bishop built a deep arch over his tomb  Above on a platform accessed by a single flight of steps on which he also built a new bishops' throne. His effigy is of alabaster. Must of the painting and gilding was done in the 1930's but some of the original does remain.    

The photographs are taken from the choir and from the choir aisles.

Also: Bishop Beaumont (1333) This a stone with a brass matrix in front of the sanctuary steps; it does contain a brass but this dates from 1951. This is said to be a copy in which case an illustration of the original must exist.

The Feretory

St Cuthbert (c. 634-687) was an Anglo-Saxon saint in the Celtic Christian tradition, who was born and lived in the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Northumbria. He travelled throughout the country but in in 676 'retired' for a contemplative life, becoming a hermit in a number of islands off the Northumbrian coast. After the Synod of Whitby he appeared to have accepted the Roman Christian tradition.

In 684 he was elected Bishop of Hexham and, although he was reluctant to accept, was eventually persuaded to do so. However his 'swapped' the bishopric with that of Lindisfarme and became bishop there.

After Christmas 686 he retired a second time to his remote cell and died there in the following spring. He was buried at Lindisfarne. To avoid the marauding Danes, his remains were removed and eventually found their way to Durham, where the Cathedral Priory was founded.

He was in due course buried in a shrine which was destroyed at the Dissolution but his remains were not destroyed but buried under the stone we see today. The tester over the tomb is from 1949 and by Sir Ninian Comper. The head of St Oswald is also buried in the grave.

Who Was Saint Oswald

Oswald was a Northumbrian king who, after a period of exile, reunited the separated kingdoms of Bernicia and Deira into Northumbria once again. He promoted Christianity throughout his kingdom. He was killed in 642 at the Battle of Maserfield by the pagan, warrior King Penda of Mercia. His body was dismembered after the battle.

Maserfield in thought to be the modern Oswestry, which was then in Mercian territory, so this war of the two Anglo-Saxon kingdoms may well have been an offensive war of King Oswald, rather than a defensive one as is liked to be thought.

His brother, and successor, Oswiu gathered his remains, which appear to have travelled around, various bones resting in several places; however, his head was buried in Durham in the same grave as St Cuthbert. Incidentally King Penda was in due course killed in battle by the aforementioned King Oswiu.

Chapel of the Nine Altars

The Rt Rev David Jenkins

Few bishops really make their mark in modern times but Bishop of Durham, David Jenkins was a 20th century exception. He was Professor of Theology at the University of Leeds from 1957 until 1984 when he became Bishop of Durham. His selection was controversial because of his alleged heterodoxy. He was said not to believe in the Virgin Birth nor in the Resurrection. However the latter was certainly a misrepresentation of what he actually said, being only a part of a whole which in full said nothing of the sort.

Three days after his consecration as Bishop of Durham, York Minster was struck by lightening and a major fire ensued causing much damage. Some considered this a sign of Divine Displeasure.  However note that it was York Minster not Durham Cathedral.

He was a man who was never afraid to speak his mind and was a strong opponent of the policies of Thatcher and New Labour with their dogmatic faith in  the economics of The Market, which he felt had an almost religious fanaticism.

After his retirement he became an honorary Assistant Bishop of Ripon and it is reported that he was banned from preaching in several of his churches because he was alleged to have sworn during a sermon.

He wrote a number of accessible books so his thoughts are still available to all.

We need more like him.

A Welcomed Change of Policy to Photography by the Durham Cathedral Authorities, March 2019

   Before I visit a church to take photographs I normally write to that church to ask permission to do so; I also explain that this is for academic purposes only and not for any commercial purpose or financial gain. I do not write when I plan to visit a cathedral (or a large church) as they are always (in England and Wales) staffed as well as there being a welcome desk, where a request can be made. There may be a reasonable charge or none at all for photography; there may also be restrictions on the use of flash or tripods and even that may apply only to certain parts of the cathedral or certain times of the day.

   I visited Durham several years ago and was disappointed to see a notice stating No Photography. I asked about this at the welcome desk and was told that photography was only allowed under special circumstances and anyway requires a prior written request. I explained that my request was strictly for academic purposes and that we had travelled several hundred miles to visit Durham Cathedral, so I was reluctantly taken to a cathedral office where I spoke to the person behind the desk there, who told me that the person who can grant permission for photography was away  that day. 'Does she not have a deputy who can do so?' I asked. The answer, as expected, was in the negative.

  I was, however, given a leaflet explaining the rules. The attitude was uncompromising if not frankly absurd. Prior permission would be granted only under special circumstances and only after a written request. The cost was high (possibly I think around £40) and permission was given for a relatively short time only. Then there were other, some rather silly, restrictions: neither tripods nor flash were to be used, the photographs most not feature children or members of cathedral staff, and others that I cannot now remember.

  This blanket ban has now been lifted as from March 2019. There are still some reasonable restrictions, such as no photography during services, in certain areas and flash is still not allowed. Flash is irritating and can damage delicate and old fabrics; flash  is rarely required with modern digital cameras anyway.

  I am sure that the lifting of this ban will be welcomed by those of us who were disappointed, if not somewhat irritated, by its imposition in the first place.


St Margaret of Antioch
The church dates from Norman times but has undergone various rebuilding and additions in medieval times and extensive Victorian restorations.
The earliest monuments date from the 18th century and, although they would scarcely delight the art historian, I have included them because of their simplicity and as a record of social history

Above from left to right: 1) Robert Wharton AM (1849) First Judge in the County Court of the North Riding of Yorkshire.  2) Elizabeth Richmond (1740)  3) Eliza Richmond (1768)  4) A thanksgiving for preservation of Lt Arthur Duncombe Shafto, 2nd Batt 5th (Northumberland) Fusiliers, throughout the South African War and the restoration of peace. Three windows were dedicated. Not strictly a church monument as such but interesting nevertheless. 5) Rev John Wheeler (1783) Curate of this Chapelry for 30 years  6) William Spearman (1775); his wife, Hannah (1763), their daughter, Hannah (1763), and son, Robert Wemyss (1793).

Mary Anne Fawcett (1849), 'relict of the Rev John'. Their third son, William (1829). And their youngest daughter, Julia Fawcett (1881). William was 18 and his sister 21.  The wall behind Julia's monument appears to have held a gabled backing, now removed. The father and two children were buried in the same grave. Top right: Robert Burrel (1831) 45 years proctor in the Consistory Court of Durham.

Other Monuments

St Mary the Less  
South Bailey
So called to distinguish it from St-Mary-le-Bow; both were built as garrison chapels for those guarding the city walls. The church has also been known as Little St Mary, St Mary Parva and The Little Church in the Bailey. It ceased to be a parish church in 1917 when it was taken over by St John's College of the University of Durham.
