St Andrews University's 16th century chapel recreated
The 3D video shows how St Salvator's Chapel appeared before the Reformation in 1559.
One of St Andrews University's oldest buildings has been digitally recreated to reveal how it looked more than 450 years ago.
St Salvator's Chapel, at the heart of the university, has been reconstructed as it appeared before the Reformation in a 3D video.
The video is the first step in a project to recreate the burgh of St Andrews as it appeared in 1559, just before the town officially adopted Protestantism and transformed many Catholic buildings.
Historians and computer scientists at the university are working together for the St Andrews 1559 project.
St Salvator's was chosen due to the significant role it played in the Scottish Reformation.
In February 1528, a 24-year-old academic, Patrick Hamilton, was burned alive outside the building after voicing support for Martin Luther's criticisms of the Catholic Church.
He was the first person to be executed in Scotland for voicing Protestant ideas.
'It was of course also the scene of one of the most horrific events of the Scottish Reformation.'Dr Bess Rhodes
Dr Bess Rhodes said: "We selected St Salvator's as the place to begin our reconstruction as a major landmark in the modern university and the town.
"It was of course also the scene of one of the most horrific events of the Scottish Reformation - the burning of Patrick Hamilton for his Lutheran beliefs.
"Particularly chillingly, Hamilton's death was something the university was directly involved in - playing a role in the prosecution and conviction of this very young man.
"Yet at the same time St Salvator's has been the scene of fantastic academic achievement and many happy incidents in the university's history."
