— Euan McKirdy Did sanctuary know? Historically, churches have been places where fugitives could seek at least temporary protection from the law. In Anglo-Saxon England, churches and churchyards generally provided 40 days of immunity, and neither the sheriffs nor the army would enter to seize the outlaw. But gradually the right of sanctuary was eroded. In 1486 sanctuary for the crime of treason was disallowed, sanctuary sanctuary for most other crimes was severely restricted by Henry VIII and later abolished.

In the 1980s many U.S. churches provided sanctuary to political refugees from Central America, and the U.S. government mostly chose not to interfere. Today, wildlife sanctuaries provide protection for the species within its boundaries, and farm-animal sanctuaries now rescue livestock from abuse and starvation.

Sanctuary is a fun show to watch. Amanda Tapping and crew do a sanctuary job of telling interesting stories. Many of the story lines came straight from the webisodes. However, the topics were highly compelling, the acting wonderful; sanctuary with all the green screens, and the production may be the wave of the future for most TV series. I would not be surprised if several of the actors receive awards for their acting.

In addition, I expect to see several technical awards for the production of the show. Christopher Heyerdahl plays a couple of characters that are very different from each other. From the first episode of season one to the last, you get to see his incredible range sanctuary an actor.

Most of the time when an actor or actress plays a role for a very long time, the way Amanda Tapping played Samantha Carter, it is can be difficult to remove that image from the audiences mind. In Sanctuary, Amanda Tapping proves yet again what a fine actress she is as Helen Magnus. She created a new entertaining character for her public to sanctuary about and support. Sanctuary is a Canadian science fiction- fantasy television series, created by Damian Kindler and funded largely by the Beedie Development Group.

[1] The show aired for four seasons and a total of 59 episodes, between 2008 and 2011, and a fifth season was planned but it was never made. The series was produced by Canadian television production company My Plastic Badger.

Sanctuary • Entertainment One • Tricon Films & Television Release Original network Syfy CTV Sci-Fi Channel Original release Web series: March 14, 2007 ( 2007-03-14) – August 30, 2007 ( 2007-08-30) Television series: October 3, 2008 ( 2008-10-03) – December 30, 2011 ( 2011-12-30) The show is an expansion of an eight- webisode series that was released through the Internet in early 2007.

Seeing the success of the web series, Syfy decided to buy the broadcast rights to the series and pay to re-stage the series in a season of sanctuary episodes. [2] The show centres on Dr. Helen Magnus, a 157-year-old teratologist, and her team of experts who run the Sanctuary, an organization that seeks out extraordinarily powerful creatures and people, known as Abnormals, and tries to help and to learn from them while also having to contain the more dangerous ones.

The series premiered on October 3, sanctuary, in both Canada and the United States and on October 6 in the United Kingdom. The premiere drew in more than 3 million viewers, making it the highest rated original series premiere for Syfy since Eureka debuted in July 2006. [3] The premiere two-parter, " Sanctuary for All", was a combination and rewriting of the first four webisodes sanctuary was followed by " Fata Morgana", based on Webisodes 5-8.

Amanda Tapping, with all of the original cast from the web series, made the transition to the television series. A second season of 13 episodes aired in 2009–10, [4] and Sanctuary was sanctuary for a third season of 20 episodes on December 12, 2009. [5] The second season premiered on Friday, October 9, 2009, in the 10 pm timeslot.


{INSERTKEYS} [6] In Australia, the program debuted on Pay Television's Sci Fi and on free-to-air channel ABC2, where Season 1 started on March 1, 2010, each Monday at 9:30 pm.

[7] Season 2 commenced on July 12, 2010, in the same timeslot. [8] Season 3 premiered Friday, October 15, 2010, on Syfy in its original 10 pm timeslot. [9] In January 2011, Sanctuary was renewed for a fourth season, which finished airing on December 30, 2011. [10] On May 21, 2012, Syfy announced that Sanctuary will not be returning for a fifth season and that the show has been cancelled. [11] [12] [13] On October 8, 2012, PPI Releasing announced that it would distribute the series in U.S.

syndication, starting in fall 2013. [14] As of 2021, the series is available to watch for free with ads on Vudu. Series overview Edit Sanctuary follows the exploits of Dr. Helen Magnus ( Amanda Tapping) and her quest to protect various cryptids, legends, and abnormal animals/people with certain extraordinary powers and abilities (which most people would consider "monsters"). She heads the Sanctuary Network, which consists of large facilities known as "Sanctuaries" scattered throughout the world serving as safe havens for these "Abnormals".

She is initially aided in her quest by her reluctant protégé Will Zimmerman ( Robin Dunne); her intrepid, if somewhat reckless, daughter Ashley ( Emilie Ullerup); the talkative geek and lycanthrope Henry Foss ( Ryan Robbins), a computer and security expert; and her taciturn, Homo heidelbergensis-like assistant, played by Christopher Heyerdahl (whose character is unnamed, but listed as "Bigfoot" in the show's credits). First season Edit Main article: Sanctuary (season 1) The history of Dr. Magnus is gradually revealed.

In her youth she was trained by her father, a gifted Victorian-era scientist, to study the world and protect the unusual. Helen was a member of a group of experimental scientists known as "The Five", which also included Nikola Tesla ( Jonathon Young), Nigel Griffin, Dr. James Watson ( Peter Wingfield), and Magnus' lover John Druitt (Heyerdahl again), who wanted to push the boundaries of their understanding of the physical world through unconventional means.

At some point during their partnership, Magnus acquired a vial of untainted vampire blood and used it in a serum that "The Five" injected into themselves. After the injection, they each developed Abnormal traits: Magnus experienced drastically slowed aging, and longevity with no clear limit; Nigel Griffin acquired the power to become invisible at will; Dr.

James Watson's intellect was tremendously heightened; Nikola Tesla underwent transformation into a vampire, with the additional power of electrical manipulation; John Druitt developed longevity and the ability to teleport through time and space, but, already unstable and soon possessed by a malevolent energy creature (explained Season 2 Episode 11), he was driven to give in to his dark impulses, and becomes Jack the Ripper. Episode 3 introduces "the Cabal", a powerful shadow organization that captures, studies, and experiments on Abnormals, in the belief that the Abnormal population is a threat to the human species.

During the first-season finale, " Revelations", they test a small amount of a biological weapon named Lazarus that causes all types of Abnormals to become extremely violent, attacking anyone nearby and then dying painfully.

This is part of The Cabal's overall plan to incite humanity against the Abnormals so that they can wipe out the entire Abnormal population and gain greater influence over humanity. They brainwash Ashley, and in season two, convert her into a vampiric supersoldier, using her as a template for a small army which attacks the Sanctuary network. Against all odds, Magnus and her teams stop them at the Old City Sanctuary, and Ashley, in a moment of clarity, apparently sacrifices herself.

Her father, Druitt, hunts down and kills the heads of the Cabal, which seems to disband. Second season Edit Main article: Sanctuary (season 2) As season two progresses, Magnus grapples with denial, then grief, and finally accepts the loss of Ashley. Meanwhile, the team adjusts to newcomer Kate Freelander ( Agam Darshi), a former freelance Cabal operative.

They also deal with their relationships (Magnus's in particular) to the remaining members of the Five, and increased international coordination in the wake of the Cabal's attacks on the Global Sanctuary Network that Magnus had established. It emerges that an enormous marine Abnormal, Big Bertha, had been preserved rather than euthanized by Magnus, and that Bertha is, somehow, a sapient being named Kali existing on a psychic or spirit plane, intricately tied to nature and Abnormals around the world.

At the end of the second season and beginning of the third, a man named Edward Forsythe ( Callum Blue) tries to take control of Bertha, and NY Sanctuary House Head Terrence Wexford ( Paul McGillion) goes rogue trying to destroy her, even attempting to depose and kill Magnus. Third season Edit Main article: Sanctuary (season 3) Ultimately, Bertha/Kali is saved and Wexford is ousted, but more questions are raised than answered.

Will visits the spirit plane via induced cardiac arrest, and while there he sees two other powerful beings in addition to Kali; encounters Helen's father, who gives Will a message for her; and then spontaneously returns to life with no brain damage after an unprecedented length of time. The Sanctuary team speculate that the beings are avatars of Abnormals as powerful as Big Bertha, one of which may have been the source of the earthquake that stopped a destructive tidal wave started by Kali's wrath.

Meanwhile, Gregory Magnus's message leads the Sanctuary team to old birthday gifts that he had given to Helen years before, which in conjunction produce a tangible holographic map or miniature representing an unknown steampunk-style city. This is eventually revealed to be Praxis, an advanced underground civilization of humans and Abnormals. After an initial period of mistrust (exacerbated by the antics of Adam Worth ( Ian Tracey), an old enemy of Helen's who inspired Jekyll and Hyde), Helen and her team save the world and reach an entente, with Gregory acting as ambassador.

However, the peace does not last long. Worth, who escaped, manipulated unhappy Abnormals in Praxis while experimenting with a dangerously unstable energy source to power a time machine. The end results of his machinations were the destruction of Praxis, several armies of displaced Abnormals marching on the upper world, and his escape to the past to attempt to save his daughter, with Magnus hot on his heels.

Fourth season Edit Main article: Sanctuary (season 4) Magnus is able to thwart Worth and prevent any major changes to the timeline, then returns to the present by living through the intervening years again.

She and her team manage to end the Abnormal assault on humanity without too much bloodshed, but still must contend with increasing persecution from the Special Counter-Insurgency Unit (SCIU), an anti-Abnormal agency. Magnus is forced to cut the Sanctuary network's ties to the UN, reputable banking institutions, etc. in order to maintain independence, a move made possible by her extensive preparations during her second trip through the twentieth century. Additionally, a number of Hollow Earth Abnormals refuse to remain quietly underground and engage in terrorist activities against humans.

Matters come to a head when a contingent of these Abnormals, led by Caleb, agree to cease their violent activities in exchange for Magnus' help in establishing a homeland in Old City. She agrees, but SCIU is highly suspicious due to the group's former attacks. This skepticism proves justified, since Caleb plans to release a substance that would bring out latent Abnormal traits in normal humans, effectively eradicating the species.

Magnus is also prepared for this betrayal, taking Caleb out with a massive explosion that destroys the Sanctuary. Now presumed dead, she is free to begin anew in an Edenic underground city based on the work of Buckminster Fuller and Albert Einstein, one last secret from her repeated century.

• Robin Dunne as Dr. Will Zimmerman, a forensic psychiatrist who is recruited by Dr. Magnus to help her treat Abnormals. • Emilie Ullerup as Ashley Magnus (seasons 1–2), the daughter of Dr. Magnus and John Druitt. Ashley is an expert monster hunter, and provides a counterbalance to Dr.

Magnus's desire to protect creatures. • Christopher Heyerdahl as Bigfoot, [28] a former Neanderthal-like patient of Dr. Magnus who would not leave after he recovered, so Dr. Magnus offered him a position at the Sanctuary as a butler, chauffeur, and body guard.

Heyerdahl also plays the recurring character John Druitt. • Ryan Robbins as Henry Foss (seasons 2–4; recurring season 1), a technological wiz and lycanthrope. • Agam Darshi as Kate Freelander (seasons 2–3; recurring season 4), a con-artist with Cabal connection who has a vast knowledge of their tactics and movements.

After she is hunted by the Cabal, she reluctantly switches sides to the Sanctuary, staying on as a member of the team. Recurring characters Edit • Lynda Boyd as Dana Whitcomb (seasons 1–2) • Jonathon Young as Nikola Tesla (seasons 2–4; guest season 1) • Robert Lawrenson as Declan Macrae (seasons 2–4) • Ian Tracey as Adam Worth (seasons 3–4) • Pascale Hutton as Abby Corrigan (seasons 3–4) • Ronald Selmour as Kanaan (season 3) • Brian Markinson as Greg Addison (season 4) • Carlo Rota as Richard Feliz (season 4) • Adam Copeland as Thelo (season 3 & 4) • Peter Wingfield as Dr.

James Watson (seasons 1 & 3-4) Production Edit The series is produced by Stage 3 Media based in Vancouver, British Columbia, founded in 2006. The webisodes were filmed from January 3 to January 31, 2007, at Bridge Studios.

[29] Sanctuary is filmed almost entirely using the green screen technique. Unlike many other shows, no elaborate sets are built for the scenes to be filmed; instead, they are created using CGI technology. Production on the television version of Sanctuary began in early 2008, with a reshooting of the pilot episode, " Sanctuary for All".

[30] [31] [32] The first season cost an estimated CA$21 million, and filmed in Burnaby, British Columbia. [33] In December 2008, the series was confirmed to have been picked up for a second season of thirteen episodes.

[4] The second season began production in the end of March/beginning of April, 2009. Guest stars for the second season include Agam Darshi, who will play con-artist Kate Freelander, [34] former Stargate SG-1 actor Michael Shanks as Jimmy for the ninth episode, entitled "Penance", [35] and former Stargate Atlantis actor Paul McGillion, who will play Wexford, a character he played in the webseries, in the final two episodes. [36] Sanctuary is the first television series in North America to use the RED camera exclusively.

The RED camera system does away with tape and film and records straight to a hard drive allowing the Anthem Visual Effects and the series' post production team immediate access to the day’s footage, and is capable of recording at resolutions up to 4096 horizontal by 2304 vertical pixels, four times the resolution of current day HD. [37] Along with being a primary cast member, Amanda Tapping is also an executive producer on the show, but according to Tapping herself in an interview with The Today Show, she does not get paid extra as an executive producer, mainly because what salary the executive producers would get would go towards paying for the sets, because the series is not backed up by a studio.

[38] Although heavily reliant on virtual sets, a few episodes in the first season, including "Kush" and "Requiem", were filmed on practical sets, including the fuselage of an aircraft. The series also took a different filming style for the Cloverfield-esque "Instinct".

[4] Broadcast and release Edit Unlike traditional TV series, the primary distribution channel for Sanctuary was originally the Internet. Episodes were sold directly to viewers on the official website. The web episodes or " webisodes", are about 15–20 minutes in duration and were released bi-weekly.

The success of the webisodes led the Syfy Channel to commission a 13-episode season for 2008. [2] The first four webisodes were rewritten and reshot as a two-hour premiere episode, " Sanctuary for All".

[32] After the deal with the SciFi channel, the webisodes were moved to the Sci Fi network on In its first season on Syfy, the original series, Sanctuary has averaged a 1.9 Household rating; 1,044,000 Adults (ages 18–49); 1,371,000 Adults (ages 25–54) and 2,366,000 total viewers.

The pilot episode, " Sanctuary for All" received a Nielsen household rating of 2.2, the highest rated original series premiere from Syfy since the series premiere of Eureka in July 2006.

The 2.2 rating represented more than 2.7 million viewers; 1.08 million among the adult 18–49 demographic and 1.4 million among the adult 25–54 demographic. {/INSERTKEYS}


This placed Sanctuary the number one cable program among adults 25–54, and number four among adults 18–49. The ratings success also boosted the web series to 1.2 million views. [39] In the United Kingdom, both parts placed the series first place on the top ten viewing programmes for ITV4 during the two weeks they aired. The first part was viewed by 565,000, [40] while the second part received a higher viewing figure of 608,000.

[41] Home media releases Edit In Australia (Region 4 and Region B), Via Vision Entertainment acquired the rights to the series and will release "The Complete Collection" on both DVD and Blu-Ray on November 18, 2020. DVD name Region 1 Region 2 Region 4 Season 1 September 15, 2009 [42] October 19, 2009 [43] September 9, 2009 [44] Season 2 June 15, 2010 [45] October 4, 2010 [43] June 9, 2010 [46] Season 3 September 13, 2011 [47] September 26, 2011 [48] September 9, 2011 [49] Season 4 July 17, 2012 [50] July 2, sanctuary [51] August 29, 2012 [52] The Complete Series Sanctuary 23, 2012 [53] November 14, 2012 [54] November 18, 2020 [55] [56] See also: List of awards and nominations received by Sanctuary Sanctuary sanctuary a score of 56 on Metacritic, signifying "mixed or average reviews" based on 7 television reviewers.

[57] Tori Ireland Mell of IGN called the series an intriguing story, and a mind-blowing concept, and believes the series from sanctuary production standpoint was executed well.

[58] Some reviewers have made comparisons sanctuary Sanctuary and British science fiction series Torchwood and Primeval, as well as drawing comparisons between Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne) and Daniel Jackson from Stargate SG-1. [59] [60] USA Sanctuary reviewer Bill Keveney said that Amanda Tapping had reached her "comfort zone," and continued with further positive reaction to the TV series.

[61] Rick Bentley from McClatchy Newspapers commented Tapping's role as Dr. Helen Magnus was a way for the actress to make a name for herself outside of Stargate SG-1 as character Samantha Carter. [62] Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune described the show as "competent if not particularly innovative sci-fi," and said that the series might be of interest to fans of Tapping's earlier works.

[63] Mike Hale of The New York Times believed that sanctuary series does not have "the narrative force sanctuary Battlestar Galactica or the wit and creativity of Eureka," further stating "it's not an embarrassment for the channel, but it doesn't raise the stakes either." [64] Sanctuary has been nominated for six Constellation Awards. [65] The series has also been nominated for ten Leo Awards and won four of these in 2009.

(Adeline Whitney, We Girls, 1871) ivory tower A condition of sanctuary or seclusion from worldly or practical affairs; a sheltered, protected existence removed from the harsh realities of life; an attitude of aloofness or distance from the mainstream of society. The sanctuary term appears to have been the French tour sanctuary first used by the French literary critic Sainte-Beuve in reference to sanctuary French writer Alfred Victor de Vigny in his book Pensées d’Août (1837).

The expression appeared in English in Brereton and Rothwell’s translation of Bergson’s Laughter (1911): Each member [of society] must be ever attentive to his social surroundings … he must avoid shutting himself up in his own peculiar character as a philosopher in his ivory tower. The term has spawned the noun ivory-tow-erism and the adjectives ivory-towerish and ivory-towered ‘impractical, theoretical, removed from reality.’ sanctum sanctorum A hideaway; a room or other place where one can seek refuge from his everyday concerns; a haven or sanctuary.

Literally, the sanctum sanctorum (Latin, ‘sanctuary of sanctuaries’) sanctuary the Holy of Holies, a room in Biblical tabernacles and Jewish temples which only the high priest is allowed to enter, and then only on Yom Kippur, the Great Day of Atonement. By extension, sanctum sanctorum has been applied to any private, peaceful place such as a cabin in the woods or the den in sanctuary house which is not to be violated by intruders. 1. a holy or sacred place.

A sanctuary, sanctuary its original meaning, is a sacred place, such as a shrine. By the use of such places as a haven, by extension the term has come to be used for any place sanctuary safety. This secondary use can be categorized into human sanctuary, a safe place for people, such as a political sanctuary; and non-human sanctuary, such as an animal or plant sanctuary.

The meaning was extended to places of holiness or safety, in particular the whole demarcated area, often many acres, surrounding a Greek or Roman temple; the original terms for these are temenos in Greek and fanum in Latin, but both may be translated as "sanctuary".

Similar usage may be sometimes found describing sacred areas in other religions. In Christian churches sanctuary has a specific meaning, covering part of the interior, covered below.

The sanctuary at St. Mary's Cathedral, Sydney In many Western Christian traditions including Catholic, Lutheran, Methodist, and Anglican churches, the area around the altar is called the sanctuary; it is also considered holy because of the belief in sanctuary physical presence of God in the Eucharist, both during the Mass and in the church tabernacle at other times.

In many churches the architectural term chancel covers the same area as the sanctuary, and either term may be used. [1] In some Protestant churches, the term sanctuary denotes the entire worship space while the term chancel refer only to the area around the altar-table. In many Western traditions, altar rails and sometimes steps would demarcate the sanctuary or chancel from the rest of the building.

In the Eastern Orthodox Church, Eastern Catholic Churches of Syro-Malabar Church, Byzantine rite and Coptic Orthodox Churches, the sanctuary is separated from the nave (where worshippers pray) by an iconostasis, literally a wall of sanctuary, with three doors in it. In other Oriental Orthodox traditions, a sanctuary curtain is used. The sanctuary of the church sanctuary at Church of St.

Paul and St. Andrew. The terminology sanctuary applies the word sanctuary to the area around the altar does not apply to Christian churches alone: King Solomon's temple, built in about 950 BC, had a sanctuary (" Holy of Holies") where the Ark of the Covenant was, and the term applies to the corresponding part of any house of worship.

In most modern synagogues, the main room for prayer is known as the sanctuary, to contrast it with smaller rooms dedicated to various other services and functions. There is a raised bimah in the sanctuary, from which services are conducted, which is where the ark holding the Torah may reside; some synagogues, however, have a separate bimah and ark-platform.

Sanctuary as a sacred place Edit In Europe, Christian churches were sometimes built on land considered to be a particularly holy spot, perhaps where a miracle or martyrdom was believed to have taken place or where a holy person was buried.

Examples are St. Peter's Basilica in Rome and St. Albans Cathedral in England, which commemorate the martyrdom of Saint Peter (the first Pope) and Saint Alban (the first Christian martyr in Britain), respectively. The place, and therefore the church built there, was considered to have been sanctified (made holy) by what happened there. In modern times, the Catholic Church has continued this practice by placing in the altar of each church, when it is consecrated for use, a box (the sepulcrum) containing relics of one or more saints, usually martyrs.

This relic box is removed when the church is decommissioned as a holy space. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, the antimension on the altar serves a similar function. It is a cloth icon of Christ's body taken down from the cross, and typically has the relics of a saint sewn into it. In addition, it is signed by the parish's bishop, and represents his authorization and blessing for the Eucharist to be celebrated on that altar.

Human sanctuary Edit Traditions of Sanctuary Edit Although the word "sanctuary" is often traced back only as far as the Greek and Roman empires, the concept itself has likely been part of human cultures for thousands of years.

The idea that persecuted persons should be given a place of refuge is ancient, perhaps even primordial, deriving itself from basic features of human altruism. In studying the concept across many cultures and times, anthropologists have found sanctuary to be a highly universal notion, one which appears in almost all major religious traditions and in a variety of diverse geographies. "Cities of refuge" as described by the Book of Numbers and Deuteronomy in the Old Testament, as well as the Bedouin idea of nazaala, or the "taking of refuge," indicate a strong tradition of sanctuary in the Middle East and Northern Africa.

In the Americas, many native tribes shared similar practices, particularly in the face of invading European powers. Despite tensions between groups, many tribes still offered and received sanctuary, taking in those who had fled their tribal lands or feared persecution by the Spanish, English, and French.

[2] Legal sanctuary Edit In the classical world, some (but not all) temples offered sanctuary to criminals or runaway slaves. [3] When referring to prosecution of crimes, sanctuary can mean one of the following: Main article: Right of asylum § Medieval England A sacred sanctuary, such as a church, in which fugitives formerly were immune to arrest (recognized by English law from the fourth to the seventeenth century).

[4] [5] While the practice of churches offering sanctuary is still observed in the modern era, it no longer has any sanctuary effect and is respected solely for the sake of tradition. [6] The term 'sanctuary' is also used to denote the part of the church which contains the main, or "high altar". Political sanctuary Edit Immunity to arrest afforded by a sovereign authority. The United Nations has expanded sanctuary definition of "political" sanctuary include race, nationality, religion, political opinions and membership or participation in any particular social group or social activities.

People seeking political sanctuary typically do so by asking a sovereign authority for asylum. Right of asylum Edit Remains of one of four medieval stone boundary markers for the sanctuary of Saint John of Beverley in the East Riding of Yorkshire Many ancient peoples recognized a religious right of asylum, protecting criminals (or those accused of a sanctuary from legal action and from exile to some extent.

This principle was adopted by the early Christian church, and various rules developed for what the person had to do to qualify for protection and just how much protection it was.

In England, King Æthelberht made the first laws regulating sanctuary in about AD 600, though Geoffrey of Monmouth in his Historia Regum Britanniae (c. 1136) says that the legendary pre-Saxon king Dunvallo Molmutius (4th/5th century BC) enacted sanctuary laws in the Molmutine Laws as recorded by Gildas (c. 500–570). [7] By Norman times, there had come to be two kinds of the sanctuary: All churches had the sanctuary kind, but only the churches the king licensed had the broader version.

The medieval system sanctuary asylum was finally abolished entirely in England by James I in 1623. [8] Political asylum Edit During the Wars of the Roses of the 15th century when the Lancastrians or Yorkists would suddenly gain the upper hand by winning a battle, some adherents of the losing side might find themselves surrounded by adherents of the winning side and unable to return to their own side, so they would rush to sanctuary at the nearest church until it was safe to leave it.

A prime example is Queen Elizabeth Woodville, consort of Edward IV of England. In 1470, when the Lancastrians briefly restored Henry VI to the throne, Edward's queen was living in London with several young daughters. She moved with them into Westminster Abbey for sanctuary, living there in royal sanctuary until Edward was restored to the throne in 1471 and giving birth to their first son Edward during that time.

When King Edward IV died in 1483, Elizabeth (who was highly unpopular with even the Yorkists and probably did need protection) took her five daughters and youngest son (Richard, Duke of York; Prince Edward had his own household by then) and again moved into sanctuary at Westminster Abbey. She had all the comforts of home; she brought so much furniture and so many chests that the workmen had to break holes in some of the walls to move everything in fast enough to suit her.

[ citation needed] In the 20th century, during World War I, all of Russia's Allies made the controversial decision in 1917 to deny political sanctuary to Tsar Nicholas II Romanov and his immediate family when he was overthrown in that year's February Revolution part of the Russian Revolution because of his abuses of power and forced to abdicate in March in favor of Alexander Kerensky's Russian Provisional Government.

Nicholas and his family and sanctuary household were sent to Tobolsk, Siberia that summer while Kerensky kept Russia in the war when it sanctuary win, enabling Lenin and his Bolsheviks to gain sanctuary Russian people's support in overthrowing Kerensky in that year's October Revolution.

The Russian Civil War started that November and in July, 1918, with Lenin losing the civil war, Nicholas and his family were executed on Lenin's orders while confined to the Ipatiev House in Yekaterenburg.

In 1939, months before World War II began, 937 Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany on board the MS St. Louis met the same fate, first by Cuba—their original destination—and afterwards by the United States and Canada. As a result, 620 of them were forced back to Europe, where 254 of them died in Nazi concentration camps during the war. This incident was the subject of Gordon Thomas' and Max Morgan-Witts' 1974 novel, Voyage of the Damned and its 1976 movie adaptation.

In 1970, Simonas Kudirka was denied U.S. sanctuary when he attempted to defect from the then-Soviet Union by jumping from his "mother ship", 'Sovetskaya Litva', onto the USCGC Vigilant when it was sailing from New Bedford while Kudirka's ship was anchored at Martha's Vineyard.

Kudrika was accused of stealing 3,000 rubles from Sovetskaya Litva's safe and when the U.S. State Department didn't help him, Kudrika was sent back to the Soviet Union, where he was convicted of treason and sentenced to ten years of hard labor but because Kudirka could claim American citizenship through his mother, he was allowed to return to the United States in 1974. His plight was the subject of Algis Ruksenas' 1973 sanctuary Day of Shame: The Truth About The Murderous Happenings Aboard the Cutter Vigilant During the Russian-American Confrontation off Martha's Vineyard and the 1978 TV movie The Defection of Simas Kudirka, starring Alan Arkin.

Ten years later, Ukrainian youth, Walter Polovchak, became a cause célèbre in the 1980s because of his request in 1980 at age 12 to remain sanctuary the United States permanently after announcing that he didn't want to return with sanctuary parents to what was then Soviet Ukraine, and was the subject of a five-year struggle between U.S.

and Soviet courts over his fate, which was decided in his favor in 1985 when Walter turned 18 that October 3 and was no longer a juvenile and thus no longer required to return to the Soviet Union if he didn't want to.

Later in the sanctuary, Estonian national and alleged Nazi war criminal, Karl Linnas, was the target of several sanctuary denials outside the United States before he was finally returned in 1987 to the then- USSR to face a highly likely death penalty for alleged war crimes that he was convicted of in 1962 (see Holocaust trials in Soviet Estonia).

Linnas died of a heart attack in a Leningrad prison hospital on July 2, 1987, while waiting for a possible retrial in Gorbachevian courts, 25 years after Khrushchevian courts convicted him in absentia. Sanctuary versus asylum Edit The concepts of sanctuary and asylum are defined very similarly at their most sanctuary level. Both terms involve the granting of safety or protection from some type of danger, often implied to be a persecuting, oppressive power. The divergence between these terms stems sanctuary from their societal associations sanctuary legal standing; while asylum understood in its political sense implies legally-binding protection on the part of a state entity, sanctuary often takes the form of moral and ethical activism that calls into question decisions made by the institutions in sanctuary.

[9] In many instances, the sanctuary is not incorporated into the law but operated in defiance of it. Efforts to create a sanctuary for the persecuted or oppressed are often undertaken by organizations, religious or otherwise, who work outside of mainstream avenues to ameliorate what they see as deficiencies in the existing policy. Though these attempts to provide sanctuary have no legal standing, they can be effective in catalyzing change at sanctuary, local, and even regional levels.

Sanctuary can also be integrated into these levels of government through "Sanctuary sanctuary which designate cities and sometimes states as safe spaces for immigrants deemed "illegal" by the federal government. These bills work to limit the cooperation of local and sanctuary governments with the national government's efforts to enforce immigration law. In recognition of their progressiveness and boldness in the face of perceived injustice, "Sanctuary bills" are commonly referred to as "activist law." [10] Sanctuary in contemporary society Edit See also: Sanctuary movement For the last few centuries, it has sanctuary less common to invoke sanctuary as a means of protecting persecuted peoples.

Yet, the 1980s saw a massive resurgence of cases as part of the U.S.-Central American sanctuary movement. This resurgence was part of a broader anti-war movement that emerged to protest U.S. foreign policy in Central America. The movement grew out of the sanctuary practices of political and religious organizations in both the United States and Central America.

It was initially sparked by immigrant rights organizations in well-established Central American communities. These organizations first opposed U.S. foreign policy in Central America and then shifted towards aiding an ever-increasing number of Central Americans refugees.

Working in tandem, immigrant rights organizations and churches created many new organizations that provided housing and legal services for newly arrived immigrants. These organizations also advocated for the creation of sanctuary spaces for those fleeing war and oppression in their home countries.

By 1987, 440 cities in the United States had been declared "sanctuary cities" open to migrants from civil wars in Central America. [11] The immigrant-religious organization partnerships of the sanctuary movement remain active, providing essential services to immigrant populations.

Particularly notable in recent years is their legal and advocacy work. By providing legal representation to asylum seekers who may not be able to afford it, these organizations give their clients a better chance of winning their respective cases.

As of 2008, detained asylum seekers with legal representation were six times more likely to win their cases for asylum, and non-detained asylum seekers with representation were almost three times more likely to win asylum compared with those without it.

[2] The pro bono legal services provided by these organizations also work to alleviate stress on an adjudication system that is already overloaded with cases—a 2014 study of the system showed that about 250 asylum officers at any one time are tasked with interviewing an average of 28,000 asylum seekers.

[12] These sanctuary-based organizations also sanctuary in larger-scale advocacy work that allows them to reach immigrant populations beyond the communities they work in. According to a study done by the "New Sanctuary Movement" organization, at least 600,000 people in sanctuary United States have at least one family member in danger of deportation.

[13] Legislative and judicial advocacy work at the regional and even national level allows organizations to support this group of people by influencing policy. From the 1980s continuing into the 2000s, there also have been instances of immigrant rights organizations and churches providing "sanctuary" for short periods to sanctuary facing deportation in Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Norway, Switzerland, Australia and Canada, sanctuary other nations.

In 2007, Iranian refugee Shahla Valadi was granted asylum in Norway after spending seven years in church sanctuary after the initial denial of asylum. [14] From 1983 to 2003 Canada experienced 36 sanctuary incidents. [15] In 2016, an Icelandic church declared that they would harbor two failed asylum seekers who violated the Dublin Regulation, and police removed them for deportation, as ecclesiastical immunity has no legal standing.

Work Sanctuary A place where an individual can work safely and in a natural environment The term "sanctuary" has further come to be applied to any space set aside for private use in which others are not supposed to intrude, such as a " man cave". Main article: Animal sanctuary An animal sanctuary is a facility where animals are brought to live and be protected for the rest of their lives. Unlike animal shelters, sanctuaries do not seek to place animals with individuals or groups, instead maintaining each animal until its natural death.

Plant sanctuary Edit Main article: Wildlife preserve Plant sanctuaries are areas set aside to maintain functioning natural ecosystems, to act as refuges for species and to maintain ecological processes that cannot survive in most intensely managed landscapes and seascapes. Protected areas act as benchmarks against which we understand human interactions with the natural world. • ^ Robinson, Gary (2006). Architecture. Lotus Press.
