This is one of my favorite cathedrals that I've written about.

Saint Magnus was born in 1075, the son of Erlend Thorfinnsson, Earl of Orkney. Magnus served as chamberlain to the king of Norway. The king took possession of the Orkney Islands in 1098. Magnus had gained a reputation for piety and gentleness.
