Description EN

In the early 1800's, Marylanders began to commemorate the "lost city" of St. Mary's as a place of special significance.  The 300th anniversary of Maryland's founding in 1934 brought renewed attention and enthusiasm.  The State House replica was built, a huge celebration drawing over 100,000 people was held, and this statue was commissioned.  It honors religious tolerance, a right secured to all citizens of Maryland by "An Act Concerning Religion," passed in the General Assembly in 1649.

According to the sculptor, Hans Schuler, his work "represents the liberation of the spirit that had for so long been bound by intolerance...The torch represents the flame that kindled this fire of religious freedom throughout the world."
