Before starting the rebuilding of St Paul’s following the Great Fire, Christopher Wren stood on the empty site and called for a stone to mark the centre of the new building. A workman pulled a fragment of an old gravestone from the rubble and handed it to him: it was inscribed ‘Resurgem’ - ‘I shall rise again’. It had already been rebuilt three times and now for the fourth, like a phoenix from the ashes. Over the great south door of the completed cathedral stands the carved phoenix which he placed there, above the solitary word ‘Resurgem’.
