All this history and effort over the last 1000 years, just so Christine can creat a grand floral display in Salisbury Cathedral for the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta in September. I'm astonished they could predict that . 😃 If you're interested in a few facts, read on . The first Salisbury Cathedral was completed at Old Sarum in 1092 under Osmund, the first Bishop of Salisbury. The Domesday Book is thought to have been presented to William the Conqueror at Old Sarum a few years earlier, in 1086. Disputes with the military and scarce water supplies led to an alternative location being sought and in 1220 a new site for the Cathedral was consecrated at New Sarum. The main Cathedral was built in just 38 years using 60,000 tons of Chilmark Stone and 10,000 tons of Purbeck Stone, 2,641 tons of oak and 420 tons of lead. When the spire was added in the early/mid 1300s it added a further 6,500 tons.
Just arrived at the Library of Congress. People are rushing in, because it is the last day that the Magna Carta will be on exhibit. It is one of 4 original copies. It is the Lincoln Cathedral Copy, sent to the Arch Bishop of Lincoln soon after June 15th, 1215, where it remained stored until the 19th century, when Librarians realized it was one of the 4 originals. The other 3 are at : 1. Salisbury Cathedral; 2. the other 2 are at the British Library. The Lincoln copy is the only one that travels internationally. The document is approx. 54 lines, 3,500 words. The folds in the document are originals from 1215. The document has no signatures. The Barons are listed at the top, and King John sealed the document. It was not the custom of the day to sign the document. The seal is missing, no one knows what happened to it. The document was scribed horizontally, sealed, folded, and sent to the Lincoln Cathedral. I hope you have gotten a chance to see it while it was here. Judea USA

THIS DAY IN CHRISTIAN HISTORY: April 28 Looking back on the history of Christianity and the Church, we notice that it is sometimes violent, sometimes inspiring, shocking, tragic, comic, or just plain bizarre. It is certainly never dull. Our Christian heritage was passed down to us through blood, sweat and tears, but mostly by the faith of our fathers. The church age as we know it is coming to an end very soon. Be very blessed and informed as you read these brief notations on the successes and failures of Christianity throughout the ages.
