ANGLICANISM AND THE WESTERN CHRISTIAN TRADITION

Edited by Stephen Platten

The essays in this volume are revised and edited versions of papers delivered by Anglican and Roman Catholic historians at a colloquium held at the Gregorian University in Rome in June 2002.

The essays are scholarly and at the same time readable and accessible. The writers examine the development of the Church in England over 500 years from a range of standpoints. For instance, Pauline Croft describes the way in which individual members of the Cecil family coped with the changes which influenced the ecclesiastical and political worlds in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Peter Lake gives a masterly account of the significance of Richard Hooker. Gerald Noel examines ARCIC and other aspects of ecumenical developments in recent decades. Those who wish to deepen their awareness of the development of Anglicanism in the context of Western Christendom, particularly in relation to the Roman Catholic Church, will gain much from this book.
