A Relic of the Non-Jurors

Above is a medallion commemorating the Non-Jurors, an early movement in the Church of England that sought (but failed to attain) unity with the Orthodox Church. Had they followed through and been received, they would have become the first Western Rite in modern times.

Here's an explanation of the medal:

671. Archbishop Sancroft and the Bishops, 1688Bust of Archbishop Sancroft, right, wearing a cap and clerically robed.Seven cameo busts of bishops William Lloyd, Francis Turner, John Lake, Henry Compton, Thomas Ken, Thomas White and Sir John Trelawney; a field of stars. By George Bower.

Sorry, guys, the medal's sold.
