St George's Cathedral

Venue:5 Wale Street
Cape Town
Doors Open:09h00



Cathedrals are not usually political powerhouses, but in as much as they stand as witnesses to the Lord who is Lord over all human activity, they are meant to show in deed as well as word that justice and righteousness are at the heart of religious faith. St George's Cathedral had inevitable colonial beginnings and was political insofar as it mirrored the beliefs and ideals of the British Empire. These were limited by the conviction that white people were, in unspecified ways, superior to other races and 'lesser breeds without the law', as Kipling wrote.
