Wallpaper Description:
Elgin Cathedral, sometimes referred to as The Lantern of the North, is a historic ruin in Elgin, Moray, north-east Scotland. The seats of the early bishops of Moray were located consecutively at the churches of Birnie, Kineddar and Spynie. Bishop Bricius obtained papal authority to establish a fixed location for his cathedral at Spynie in 1206 but petitioned the pope before 1216 to have it moved to Elgin. The cathedral remained at Spynie until 1224 however, when it was finally translated to Elgin by Bricius's successor, Andreas. The construction of this cathedral was completed towards the end of the 13th century.
