The Way, The Truth, The Life
Above the two plaques featured yesterday and the day before is yet another demonstration of the University’s coat of arms, the umpteenth example around campus. (Yes, I’m trying to find as many of them as possible, so hints and tips in the comments please.)
The University’s motto, Via Veritas Vita, stands for the Way, the Truth, the Life, but any idea where it’s from? The bird, the fish, the tree, the ring and the bell all derive from the miracles of St Mungo, but where do the other two objects in the coat of arms come from, or what do they represent?
