This talk is one of a series organised by the Cathedral Collections Department. Each speaker takes an item in The Collections or an aspect of the Cathedral's history as a starting point from which to explore the life and work of St Paul's.
The Cathedral Collections: Library, Archive and Objects form a unique record of the spiritual, liturgical, architectural, administrative and social life of one of the world's outstanding buildings and its imposing predecessor, the Pre-Fire Cathedral.
