Fe University – Cities of the World – Edinburgh

January 9 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Edinburgh: Story of a City with Mary Magray

Author Alexander McCall Smith has called Edinburgh a “heartbreakingly engaging city,” a city remarkably easy to fall in love with. Why? Because of how and when and where the city took shape. Because of the fact that from its start it has been the “capital” city—the “first” city—of Scotland. And because of its rich, proud, and enduring culture—never sacrificed in the cause of cooperation with its powerful neighbor to the south—that has, over the centuries, suffused this entrancing city.

The march of history is how Edinburgh came to be what it is today. From the heights of Castle Rock (where Edinburgh began) and the palace of Mary Queen of Scots to the Union with Great Britain in 1707, from the earliest Catholic friaries to the Protestant reformer John Knox’s St. Giles Kirk, from the Scottish Enlightenment to the restoration of the Scottish Parliament in 1998—history is everywhere to be seen, touched, and felt in what many have called “the loveliest city in the world.”

This event is part of a series of travelogues.
