My classmate’s discussion
This summer I had the pleasure of doing some backpacking in Europe. In Europe I went to 4 cities but the first city I visited was London and one of the many sites I saw there was the beautiful St. Paul’s Cathedral. I am a choir nerd and I sat for their evensong that day and I will never forget the beauty of their song and of that building. Inside of St. Paul’s Cathedral are many mosaics that are in many ways very similar to what was discussed in this unit. It mostly differed in that the mosaics were predominantly wall and ceiling mosaics. I would recommend anyone to check it out if they are ever in London, Christian or otherwise!
