Guided tour of the Cathedral and a movie?
Sounds like a date doesn’t it? On Sunday at 14.45 I will do a guided tour of the Cathedral. It was completed in 1145 and has a very rich history. There are lots of interesting stories to be told – find out how the Danes got their flag, meet the bishop who was buried in the wall against his will and learn about the traitor who founded the University of Lund. Also, the real reason why all lectures at Lund University start 15 minutes after the hour is finally revealed! If you can’t go this Sunday there will be other opportunities.
On Tuesday at 7 pm we will show the movie “Of Gods and men” at Domkyrkoforum. The movie, which won awards and got glowing reviews, is based on a true story. In 1996, in Algeria, eight French monks of The Monastery Notre-Dame de l’Atlas of Tibhirine had a simple life serving the poor community that was raised around the monastery. During the Algerian Civil War, they were threatened by fundamentalist terrorists and must decide whether to leave or stay. After the movie there will be coffee and a discussion. Hope to see you on both Sunday and Tuesday!
