Saint Paul's Cathedral


Saint Paul's Cathedral
The first St Paul's Cathedral church in London was that of Mellitus, consecrated by Augustine and appointed bishop of London, which was dedicated to St Paul in c.603 and built by jTZthelbert, king of Kent (d. 616). Another old St Paul's was completed in 1283. At that time it was the largest church in Europe and looked something like today's Notre Dame in Paris. Damaged beyond repair in the Great Fire of London in 1666, this St Paul's was replaced by Sir Christopher Wren's church.
