William & Mary’s ad hoc committee on the cross announced its compromise solution: put the Wren Chapel cross in a place of honor — in a glass case with a plaque noting the chapel’s Anglican roots. The decision seems appropriate for a secular institution, especially because the prime argument for the cross was historical. Of course, such a move makes one think that the Christian aspects of the chapel are only in the past. The church as museum. Reminds me of St. Paul’s. Maybe William & Mary can open the Wren Chapel to corporate events.
