Magna Carta: 'To have but not to hold' by the Very Reverend Philip Buckler

One of the four original copies of Magna Carta is on display in the Reagan Presidential Library until June 20th, when it will return to its permanent home, Lincoln Cathedral, where it has resided since its promulgation at Runnymede in 1215.

In the following reflection given in January at the Reagan Library, the Dean of Lincoln Cathedral, Very Reverend Philip Buckler, shares the history, significance, and meaning today of the document that President Reagan called "one of the springs from which the great river of human freedom rises."
