Overview

Christian E. Hauer, Jr., and William A. Young tell the story of a London parish church from its origins during Saxon times until the present, in the context of religious, social, political, and economic developments in the City of London and the nation. More than fifty photographs illustrate this unique volume, which contains many highlights within its informative sweep of London and church history. For those interested in archaeology, it provides fascinating archaeological evidence of the Roman and Saxon periods. For those interested in the most important playwright in Western literature, there is an examination of the relationship between William Shakespeare and two of his fellow actors, John Heminges and Henry Condell, both of the parish. There is a full account of the rebuilding of the church by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London, contributing to the field of architectural history and enhancing our understanding of Wren's restoration of London churches. Those interested in church history will enjoy the account of the role of the church during the seventeenth-century English Revolution, focusing on the career of Edmund Calamy, one of the principal leaders of the Presbyterian wing in the Church of England. It also provides an understanding of the development of the origins of radical politics in the English and American traditions. Finally, it tells 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.
