This is one of the most famous documents in the world – Magna Carta, originally issued in 1215 by King John of England as a charter. For the first time in history, Magna Carta established the principle that everybody, including the king, was subject to the law.
As a cornerstone of the British constitution, Magna Carta has inspired the significant documents all over the world, such as United States Declaration of Independence and Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
To mark the 800th anniversary, Hereford Cathedral’s 1217 version of the Magna Carta will make an historic visit to Guangzhou for a 2-day public exhibition. The exhibition will co-host by the British Consulate General and the U.S. Consulate General in Guangzhou.
