"Holy Trinity Church-Shakespeare's baptism and burial place In the town of Stratford, Fog and his friends walked forward along the Avon River that guards the town. The river flows quietly, and the black and white geese go to the sky. On the riverside, men and women, young and old, take a stroll. , I meditated in my heart that only such a picturesque, romantic and peaceful place can nurture the master of Shakespeare's generation of literature. Twenty minutes later, we enter the Holy Trinity Church in the center of the town. This is where Shakespeare received his baptism and rest. The church keeps records of these two events. Entering the door, I saw a baptismal basin with mottled colors and petals. According to legend, Shakespeare was baptized in this basin. Wu felt a bit familiar, and it seemed a bit similar to the basin used by Qianlong to wash the three in the Lama Temple in Beijing. Walk through the nave and come to the oldest part of the church. Four huge pillars were built in 1210 to support the tower. The believers stop here. Tourists who want to pay tribute to Shakespeare have to donate 3 pounds. It is said that the annual maintenance cost of the church is as high as 6.5 million yuan. After payment, the staff will give you a guide map based on your nationality, in English, Chinese, Japanese and other languages. According to the guide map, there are three parts behind, but in the second part, there are barriers to stop it. The first part is the twenty-six extremely delicate seats on both sides. These seats are a place for those who come here to do a long church worship service to stand and rest. These chairs were made in the 14th century, and the carvings on them reflect real life scenes in the 15th century. The second part is the goal of tourists coming from afar. William Shakespeare and his wife Anna and other family members buried the stone in the high altar. Shakespeare was buried here in 1616 after his death. On the left wall of his tomb, there is a bust of him. This statue was built and erected for him by his widow and close friends in 1623. The honours he took are hung on the walls on both sides. Copies of the records of Shakespeare’s baptism and burial in this church. There is also a Bible with a chain in the glass cabinet. This Bible is from 1611. Shakespeare It has been visited by believers and visitors to this church since it was still alive. The third part is a very common primitive stone altar, which was dug out from the ground. It may have been buried in the ground during the 15th century European statistics reform, and contains a large number of statues and rare objects."
