The Cathedral Cat (eBook)

by (Author)

  • 39,569 Words
  • 152 Pages

A cat with wages paid four times a year; a bishop cursed by a witch; and a lady descended from a swan. These are a few of the delightful stories from Exeter Cathedral's past, unearthed by a lifetime of research into the Cathedral and its archives by a distinguished scholar. We also learn of the man who arranged to have himself displayed as a decaying corpse; the storms, battles, and burnings of heretics that amazed the cathedral clergy in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries; and the problems of travelling to London in 1562. The sixteen stories in the collection conclude with John Betjeman's mischievous visit to Exeter in the 1930s and the absent-minded bishop, Lord William Cecil, who allegedly telegraphed to his wife 'Am in Ilfracombe. Why?'
