From a recent trip to Lincoln Cathedral. Thanks to the friendly tour guide, I now understand the difference between a minster and cathedral. The later has a bishop! Indeed the word cathedral derives from the Latin ecclesia cathedralis, which essentially means church with a bishop’s seat/throne. Learn something new every day!
