Mappa Mundi – A Medieval Vision of the World

The Mappa Mundi at Hereford Cathedral is one of the great treasures of the Medieval World.

It provides a unique window into the Medieval mind, as well as the 14th century view of the geography of Christendom. Here is a fantastic universe inhabited by dragons, unicorns and giants, which depicts the spiritual path of humanity in this world and the next.

Watch as Sarah Arrowsmith, Head of Schools and Family Learning at Hereford Cathedral, as she takes us on a guided tour of this unique and beautiful work.
