Scope and Content Aerial view of St Andrews Cathedral, St Andrews, Fife The bishopric of St Andrews was refounded by David I in the early 12th century. As intended, its status preserved the Scottish church's independence from the Archbishop of York throughout the Middle Ages, even though it only became an Archdiocese in 1472. The tower of the St Rule's Church dominates the graveyard. Behind it are the remains of the medieval Cathedral, built around 1160-1238. St Andrew's Castle is also visible (top right). There was a religious community at St Andrews by the mid 8th century, and a bishop by the mid 10th century. The Augustinian canons, who replaced the original community in around 1125, flourished until the Reformation. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
