Seal of the Cathedral Chapter

As Exeter became an important religious, political and economic centre so documents needed to be authenticated with official seals. This is a copy of the seal used by the Cathedral Chapter from 1133. The seal shows a church building, but we do not know if it is an accurate depiction of Exeter Cathedral.
