Cathedral Conversation - Belief and Belonging

The People's Passion Episode 5 of 5

Belief and Belonging: the philosopher John Gray visits Canterbury to discuss the cathedral and its meaning with the Archbishop, Dr Rowan Williams. What is the role and place of the cathedral in modern Britain. What is it about this unique sacred space that has the capacity to appeal to people of faith and, more particularly, those of no faith who may come for the music, the anonymity, the history or the ritual or a combination of all of these. Although John is an atheist, they find much in common when they consider the importance of this ancient building as a place of myth and mystery.
Producer, Peter Everett.
