+ (1) FIRST, THAT WE HAVE GRANTED TO GOD,
This first clause to the Magna Carta is notable not only for being the first clause, but only one of three still in force today. Slightly ironic that the authors are granting to God the right for His Church to be separated from the English monarchy, and subsequently, the authors.
But hey, the English do not always make sense…
