Christ Church Phila.
Guide to Christ Church, Philadelphia
Julia B. Leisenring (au); Patricia A.S. Forbes (au)
This booklet provides an introduction to Christ Church in Philadelphia, a majestic building that gives testimony to vision, faith & courage. In 1695, these qualities led 39 pilgrims to start an Anglican parish in a Quaker city. In 1727, the small congregation transformed their small building into the most beautiful, majestic & grand sanctuary in the colonies, & that vision, courage & faith assures that the church still stands. In 1754, master builder Robert Smith constructed the highest structure in the colonies in the churchís majestic steeple. Contents: The Building of Christ Church; The Steeple & The Tower Room; Historic & Symbolic Objects Belonging to the Church; Christ Church in the 18th Century; Christ Church in the 20th Century; Bishop White; Rectors of Christ Church; The Church Library; Early Church Archives; Graveyard & Signers of the Declaration of Independence; Christ Church Preservation Trust; & Dates in the History of Christ Church.
