The Inner Temple: A Community of Communities
The year 2008 sees the 400th anniversary of the Letters Patent granted to the Honourable Societies of the Inner & Middle Temple by James I. The Inner Temple has published this book as a celebration of that rich and diverse history. From its earliest beginnings to the survival of its splendid buildings and traditions, despite the ravages of time and Second World War bombing, the Inner Temple certainly has a great deal to celebrate. The illustrations illuminate the splendour of the place as it is now, whilst also recalling past glories. Above all, this is a book about a community, past and present.
