It's not there anymore. What was it?

I guess the auction timed out.

It was a trip for the Archbishop of Canterbury to come to America and meet with the HoB. Since Lambeth seems always to be short of funds, Brother Causticus, of TitusOneTen fame, offered on e-bay one lucky winner the chance to finance the Archbishop's trip. The comments and BC's witty responses were very funny.

You can read all about it on TitusOneTen, at http://titusoneten.blogspot.com/2007/03/ebay-shall-not-splinter-communion.html

My mistake. The auction didn't time out. The item being sold was judged to be outside e-bay's bounds, probably because of one of the following rules:

E-bay won't list:

"Listings where the buyer cannot verify the existence of the item upon receipt of the item

Listings with the apparent, primary purpose of expressing the seller’s personal views"

http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/listing-no-item.html

So I guess you really can't sell anything on E-bay.
