On one search I found this …

Answer by Mia
It started long before that and was greatly influenced by the development of one centralized religious authority and the increase in power that entailed and then the intermingling of government and religion. The Catholic Church could also imposed taxes. In addition to collecting taxes, the Church also accepted gifts of all kinds from individuals who wanted special favors or wanted to be certain of a place in heaven. The power of the Catholic Church grew with its wealth. The Catholic Church was then able to influence the kings and rulers of Europe.

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, at 313 Pine Street, opened for worship on September 4, 1761 and served as a place of worship for many of the United States founding fathers during the period of the Continental Congresses. Scottish-born architect Robert Smith was commissioned by Society Hill Anglicans to erect in 1758, as a reaction to the overcrowding at Christ Church. The two churches functioned as one parish until 1832 with Bishop White serving as rector of both churches.

Built in Georgian style, the church features many unique design elements. The placement of the wine-glass pulpit at opposite ends of the building, and the seats in boxed pews facing either way, give the church no definitive front or back. In 1842, well-known architect William Strickland designed the landmark tower and spire that still house bells from London’s Whitechapel Foundry.

Bured in the graveyard are several important colonial Americans, including artist Charles Willson Peale, naval hero Stephen Decatur, and George Miflin Dallas, Jame K. Polk’s vice president from 1845 to 1849.

One of St. Peter’s most notable worshippers was George Washington. The grave sites of historical figures such as artist , Charles Willson Peale, Stephen Decatur and James K. Polk’s Vice-President George Mifflin Dallas are on the premises.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 18, 2006

The Christian Science Publishing Society has launched a new Bible study product designed to support teens and young adults in their spiritual exploration.

“my Bible Lesson” includes Bible timelines, word definitions and verses from multiple Bible translations, as well as explanatory notes from Bible scholars about key events, people and customs. Selected passages from the King James Bible and “Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures” by Mary Baker Eddy highlight the study theme for each week.

The latest addition to the Christian Science Quarterly line of publications, which includes the Weekly Bible Lesson in print, audio CD and online multimedia formats, “my Bible Lesson” is accessible online as a downloadable PDF.

“‘my Bible Lesson’ is about making the ideas from the Bible Lesson practical,” notes the Board of Trustees of The Christian Science Publishing Society.

Chuck Howes, managing publisher of the Publishing Society, adds, “The lively design includes photos taken around the world by young students of the Bible, and adds insightful, scholar-based commentary in a way that’s relevant and refreshing to a youthful audience.”

Currently accessible for free during its introductory period, “my Bible Lesson” will be available by subscription, both for personal study and as a gift, beginning early 2007.
