Acclaimed British artist Nicholas Pope’s dramatic work The Apostles Speaking in Tongues Lit By Their Own Lamps has just been installed at Salisbury Cathedral for Pentecost and can be seen there every day until Monday 4 August. First shown at Tate Britain in 1996-97, The Apostles Speaking in Tongues Lit By Their Own Lamps is a grouping of 33 terracotta figures which represent a dramatic re-enactment of the events narrated in the New Testament when the Holy Spirit came amongst the Apostles’ in the ‘form of cloven fire’ at Pentecost, which this year falls on Sunday 8 June. The Apostles’ lamps will be lit daily. From Mondays to Saturday they will be lit from 7am – 8am, 11am – 12 noon and 3pm – 4pm, and on Sundays from 12noon – 2pm. From Tuesday 10 June onwards visitors will be able to hear a recording of actress Harriet Walter reading the bible story narrating the events of Pentecost from Acts II which will be broadcast whenever the lamps are alight.
