Holy Things, Holy People

In 2010, the renowned British Museum in London produced a series of podcasts entitled "The History of the World in 100 Objects." The series traced the progress of humanity by exploring objects in the British Museum, from a Stone Age chopping tool to a solar-powered lamp. With this series of bulletin inserts from St. James Cathedral, we explore the story of the growth of the Catholic Church in the Pacific Northwest through significant objects found in local archives, including the Archives of the Archdiocese of Seattle, Providence Archives, Seattle University, and others.
