A treasure at St Albans

chalice 1538

This is a photo of a gorgeous chalice on display at St Albans Abbey – and if I remember correctly, it is dated 1538 – which would make it just a little after the times of Moore and Fisher. Imagine who would have drunk from it  and the priests who would have celebrated with it – nearly 500 years of history has gone by and the church is still arguing over doctrine!
