Llandaff Cathedral

Llandaff Cathedral was extensively restored in the 1840's, when Pre-Raphaelite artists including Edward Burne-Jones, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and the firm of the Arts and Crafts Movement founder, William Morris, were commissioned to make colourful new windows and decorative panels.
 
Jacob Epstein's concrete sculpture, Christ in Majesty, dominates the nave, and in the  north aisle is Rossetti's trytych, The Seed of David
 
Llandaff Cathedral stands on one of the oldest Christian sites in Britain. The original building is beleived to have been founded by St Teilo in the 6th century, but was re-built in the Norman style from around 1120.
 
From the late 14th century until the time of its restoration, the cathedral fell into disrepair. The subsequent restoration and re-building has resulted in the fusion of different architectural styles that can be seen today.
