Quick Reference

The senior see after the two archbishoprics, it comprises Greater London and part of Surrey north of the Thames. Though a British bishop from London attended the Council of Arles in 314, Augustine did not establish a diocese for the East Saxons until 604. The true succession of London bishops restarts with Wine in 666, for Cedd, Celtic bishop of the East Saxons (654–64), was never based in the city. The medieval St Paul's was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1666. The present cathedral (1675–1710) by Christopher Wren is in Renaissance style and miraculously survived the London Blitz (1940–1).
