Choir and Nave, Winchester Cathedral, United Kingdom
Last weekend I shared a photo of the beautiful sanctuary of Winchester Cathedral. From the same place from which that picture was taken, I turned around and looked down the beautiful choir area through the long nave to the porch. It is called the "nave" from the same word as navy. The church is the ship of life which carries us to the Lord.
The delicate wooden tracery which decorate the misericord of the choir is amazing. This exceptionally beautiful cathedral was begun in the year 1079 and has an interesting history. The church is still is regular use with an ambitious schedule of services and activities. They have an interesting web site.
