Into the Archives: The Consecration of the Chapel

On Ascension Day, 23 May 1623 the new Chapel at Lincoln’s Inn was consecrated. The service was led by the Bishop of London and a sermon was preached by our well known past member Dr John Donne. He had previously been the Preacher at the Inn and had laid the foundation stone of the new Chapel.

In this video, we examine the history of the Chapel through the consecration deed, heraldry within the Chapel, and related items from our archives.
