An epistemology of the heart concerns knowledge acquired by union or communion. It is founded on an intimate engagement, an intimate sensing. The example here of a world so presented - the Lady Chapel in Durham Cathedral - is drawn phenomenologically. Picture writing reveals successive layers of meaning. The writer's personal immersion, together with the imaginings of visiting groups or individuals, is the uniting thread in a tapestry of place evocation, the weaving of which has extended over two decades.
