Excerpt from Pan-Presbyterian Council; Alliance of the Reformed Churches Holding the Presbyterian System: Handbook; Glasgow, 17th to 26th June, 1896

The earliest history of the Cathedral carries us back to the year 1115, when that sore sanct, David I., restored the see of Kentigern, and appointed as the first of the new line of bishops his tutor and chaplain, John, a man of great learning and ability, under whose care the walls of the first Cathedral began to rise in 1124. For the endowment of the bishopric the king not only gifted broad lands, but levied contributions from the greater part of southern Scotland and northern England, and this original wealth was con siderably added to by William the Lion. John died in 1147, and the structure he had raised was entirely destroyed by fire in 1192. The task of rebuilding then fell upon the pious and devoted Bishop Jocelyn. Nothing daunted by his task he invoked aid from all parts of Europe, and like his southern brother gathered heaps of lime and sand, and set his masons working. The crypt, which is still called by his name, and bears such graphic testimony to his taste, was consecrated in 1197; and from the foundation thus laid, and for which Jocelyn's memory must ever be held in reverence, the pile slowly grew in the years that followed.
