250th Anniversary  

NOVEMBER 1

1755  LISBON

 EARTHQUAKE

"All hell broke loose on All Saint's Day"

On All Saints' Day, 1 Nov 1755, at approximately 9.30 am, Western Europe was shaken by a mighty earthquake. In just 10 minutes dust obscured the Sun. Some saw it as a sign of the coming of Christ - one of the great earthquakes of the Apocalypse. The catastrophe was given special religious significance – and inspired countless sermons on Providence and the wrath of God – because it struck on a Catholic holiday and destroyed almost every important church in Lisbon. It was served up to congregations as a warning. It also inspired thinkers of the European Enlightenment, including Voltaire.

In 1605 a group of men tried to blow up the houses of Parliament and overthrow the king.  But why? click here to find out what all the fuss was about. . .  

Gunpowder Plot

Guy Fawkes & Bonfire Night

 

The events of 1605 are also remembered in a nursery rhyme."Remember, remember, the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
We see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
