Truro Cathedral, The Parish Church of St. Mary

Truro Cathedral is a Neo-Gothic Cathedral which was built between 1880 and 1910. It is the only Cathedral in England to have a parish church within it. Truro was part of the diocese of Exeter until 1887. The Cathedral is dedicated to St. Mary

This window is over the south entrance to the cathedral. The window represents the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles, together with scenes showing how the spirit has subsequently guided the Church through its history.

The South Rose window - Truro Cathedral
A fine example of Victorian glass. There are other rose windows in the Cathedral.
When Truro is visited in the blogs, they will be published.
