God meets Mammon: The Financing of the New Cathedral

Dr Negley Harte

St. Paul's is perhaps the greatest building to have emerged out of the carnage wreaked by the Great Fire of 1666, but how was this vast construction funded?

Part of the Craftsman's Art and Music's Measure lecture series in commemoration of the tercentenary of the topping out ceremony at St Paul's Cathedral when the last stone was put in place.
St Paul's is the masterpiece of Britain's most admired architect, Gresham Professor Sir Christopher Wren, who worked with Gresham Professor Robert Hooke to build one of the world's best-loved buildings. Work commenced in 1675 and the final stone was laid on 20 October 1708, Sir Christopher's 76th birthday. Information about the 300th anniversary restoration programme can be found at www.stpauls.co.uk.

The other lectures in this series are:
   The New London and the Heavenly Jerusalem, by Dr Allan Chapman
   Literary Deans of St. Paul's, by Professor Tim Connell
   The Other Side of Sullivan, Professor Robin Wilson
