Following up on Jim’s earlier post on last night’s premiere of Rediscovering God in America, one of the more interesting examples of God in Washington, D.C. sits atop the Washington Monument (completed in 1884).
The Monument’s capstone is engraved with the Latin phrase, Laus Deo (“Praise Be to God”). Although visitors cannot see the inscription (from either the ground or the inside), it is there, facing east.
Interestingly, the Washington Monument is the highest structure in D.C. Coincidence?
