Temple Church

 
Temple Church hotels title=Temple Church sits within the Inner Temple of the Inns of Court, and was
originally consecrated in 1185 as the spiritual and actual home of the
Knights Templar. The church has a long and powerful history, and
survives as one of London's oldest original churches despite its
association with the once powerful order of the Templars. The
magnificent chancel of the church was built in the 13th century at the
behest of Henry III, who buried his infant son here and originally
intended to be laid to rest in the chancel himself. The
Knights Templar originally built the entire Temple complex as a seat of
power independent from the Crown, and the residences provided a focal
point for the barons as they renegotiated the Crown's power through the
Magna Carta of 1215. Despite this independent ethos, the Templars grew
close to the Crown, although even closer to Rome, and eventually the
order was to suffer from being identified with rebellious barons who
banked their money at the Temple to avoid tithes, and with a primary
loyalty to the Pope. Henry
III himself fell out with the Templars over money and loyalty and the
beginning of the Order's decline was marked by his decision to move his
own grave back to Westminster Abbey. The order was finally disbanded by
Henry VIII and many of the residencies destroyed during the Dissolution
of the Monasteries. However, the beautiful church was preserved as an
Anglican seat and has survived, occassionally propped up and restored,
since then. Miraculously the Temple Church survived the heavy
city-centred bombing of World War II with only a burnt roof and a few
cracked pillars. Today
the church is still a vibrant Anglican community with Sunday services,
and the Master of the Temple is a coveted Anglican position, with
holders giving regular talks to the public on theology. The church has
always had a fantastic choir and the magnificent acoustics attract
musicians from far and wide, including Paul Tortelier who made his
recording of the complete Bach Cello Suites there in 1983. This
beautiful church boasts an ancient and exciting history, and the
architecture speaks of the wealth and power invested in the church.
There are magnificent tombs, a splendid nave, and a majestic choir, in
what is also one of the oldest churches in London. A quiet and inspiring spot in the heart of the City.
