A NEW novel from a Salisbury writer marks the 800th anniversary of the city and the cathedral, which will be celebrated in 2020. Elias: A Story of the Founding of Salisbury by Sue Allenby is dedicated to the people of Salisbury and she will be donating all profits to local charities. The author describes it as a very human story, 'a love story on all levels.' She has researched the historical framework and used it as a setting for the recording and editing of the memories of excited, optimistic and resilient people who witnessed the building of the cathedral church and the new city: the building of Paradise, as a contemporary poet called it. The title is taken from the real life story of a remarkable figure in late 12th and early 13th century England, Elias of Dereham, a master stonemason, lawyer, judge, steward and possibly also a rebel priest, who had publicly denounced King John and was exiled by the new pope. As a sought-after lawyer he was trusted and well-liked, even by his political enemies. As a craftsman, goldsmith, and architectural visionary, his work and his ideas were breathtaking, for he shaped and guided delivery of the dreams of Salisburys great bishop, Richard Poore.
