Description

This text tells the story of a London parish church from its origins during Saxon times until the present, within the context of religious, social, political, and economic developments in the City of London and the British nation. Special points of interest include archaeological evidence of the Roman and Saxon periods; an examination of the relationship between William Shakespeare and two of his fellow actors, John Heminges and Henry Condell, both of the parish; the role of the church during the 17th-century English Revolution; a full account of the rebuilding of the church by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London; and finally, the amazing story of the re-erection of the Church of St Mary, Aldermanbury, on the campus of Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, as a memorial to Sir Winston Churchill who gave the historic "Iron Curtain" address at the College in 1946.
