The Knowledge of Our Fathers

This grant is dated 1538.

Look at the words,

barely recognisable as the language we speak today.

A stirring reminder of how much we’ve changed

over the centuries, through numerous wars,

and those sweet but short respites of peace.

Oh. Says here the bloody thing’s written in Latin.
