place of worship and prayer.

History & Collections
For more than 1,400 years, a Cathedral dedicated to St Paul has stood at the highest point in the City. The present Cathedral is the
masterpiece of Britain's most famous architect Sir Christopher Wren.
Behind the scenes, the cost of caring for St Paul's and continuing to deliver our central ministry and work is enormous and the generosity of
our supporters is critical.
Widely considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful buildings and a powerful symbol of the splendour of London, St Paul’s Cathedral is a
breathtaking events venue.
As the blue skies of summer return, we have put together a digest of all the latest articles, videos and pictures from St Paul’s Institute over the past few months.
We have had some wonderful events and are truly encouraged by everyone who attends and makes all the effort worthwhile.
St Paul's Institute exists to engage the financial world with questions of morality and ethics and how they relate to finance, business and the
economy. In doing this, the Institute seeks to recapture the Cathedral's ancient role as a centre for public debate and seeks to consider these
issues in the wider context of the common good and human flourishing.
By exploring themes of equality, stewardship and the meaning of the common good, we hope to bring the distinctive wisdom of the Christian tradition
to bear on our understanding of the role of the economy in modern society.
