StPaulsCathedral

St. Paul's Cathedral is an Anglican cathedral on Ludgate Hill, in the City of London, and the seat of the Bishop of London. It is dedicated to Paul the Apostle. The current St. Paul's was designed in the late 17th century by Sir Christopher Wren, after the previous version (now known as Old St. Paul's) had burned down in the Great Fire of London on 2 September 1666.

St. Paul's Cathedral in In the Presence of Mine EnemiesEdit

St. Paul's Cathedral was one of many London landmarks destroyed by the invading Germans during World War II that were left in ruins into the 21st Century.[1]

The Great Hall in Berlin, designed by Albert Speer, was large enough to fit 16 St. Paul's Cathedrals inside it.

Old St. Paul's Cathedral

St. Paul's Cathedral was a house of worship in London, England. It was used both in Catholic and Protestant eras, although its upkeep was a higher priority for Catholics, who worked on completing its spire during the reign of Queen Isabella and King Albert.

It was London's largest building and, in addition to religious services, was a cultural and commercial center of the city. Vendors of all sorts hawked their wares in St Paul's, including booksellers such as Harry Seymour. Only some of these booksellers sold religious tomes. Others sold plays, often recorded from actors' memories of their lines and less than perfectly faithful to the playwrights' original. Playwrights did not profit from these sales.

After Queen Elizabeth was returned to the throne in 1598, she ordered the severed heads of her executed enemies (Cardinal Robert Parsons among them) placed on pikes outside St. Paul's.
