25 May 2012
Thousands of significant objects and a large quantity of archive material from St Paul's Cathedral are now accessible to the public for the first time.
The online database, reached through the Cathedral & History section of the St Paul's website, offers themed browsing of the collections as well as a search option to help people find material they are particularly interested in.
Simon Carter, Head of the Cathedral’s Collections Department said: "Sharing the collections of St Paul’s with the world in this way helps to unlock their potential as a great source of knowledge and inspiration, and helps people to connect with the life and work of the Cathedral."
Highlights from the collections which can now be viewed online include:
- Carved and painted stones from the pre-fire Cathedral
- A portrait of the renowned poet and Dean of St Paul’s, John Donne
- Architectural Drawings by Christopher Wren
- The Jubilee Cope, designed by Beryl Dean and made for the Bishop of London to mark the Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in 1977
