28 November 2017 - 24 February 2018

£2.50 - £7.50

This exhibition will focus on the lives and legacies of female saints with a particular link to Durham or the North; well-known figures such as St Hild or St Margaret, but also some who are today less well-known, such as St Osana and St Ebbe. Find out who these women were, how they came to be saints, and why they were so highly regarded across the region. The exhibition will also explore the significance of these saints to female medieval pilgrims, and the continuing pilgrimage tradition at Durham Cathedral.

Tickets: £2.50 – £7.50 available from the Visitor Desk in the Cathedral, the Open Treasure Welcome Desk, and in advance from www.durhamcathedral.co.uk/open-treasure/book
