Work described as ‘birth certificate of the C of E’ could form centrepiece of Faith Museum in County Durham

A campaign has been launched to bring a remarkable 16th-century tapestry commissioned by Henry VIII from Spain to be the centrepiece of a new UK museum dedicated to faith opening in October.

Saint Paul Directing the Burning of Heathen Books is “effectively the birth certificate of the Church of England”, according to Jonathan Ruffer, the founder of the Auckland Project in County Durham, the site of the Faith Museum.
