  • Metrical Psalmody in Print and Practiceby Timothy Duguid

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 124.95

    During the Reformation, the Book of Psalms became one of the most well-known books of the Bible. This was particularly true in Britain, where people of all ages, social classes and educational abilities memorized and sang poetic versifications of the psalms. Those written by Thomas Sternhold and John Hopkins became the most popular, and the simple... more...

  • Anglican Confirmationby Phillip Tovey

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Confirmation was an important part of the life of the eighteenth-century church which consumed a significant part of the time of bishops, of clergy in their preparation of candidates, and of the candidates themselves in terms of a transition in their Christian life. Yet it has been almost entirely overlooked by scholars. This book aims to fill this... more...

  • Andrew Melville (1545?1622)by Steven J. Reid; Roger A. Mason

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Andrew Melville is chiefly remembered today as a defiant leader of radical Protestantism in Scotland, John Knox?s heir and successor, the architect of a distinctive Scottish Presbyterian kirk and a visionary reformer of the Scottish university system. While this view of Melville?s contribution to the shaping of Protestant Scotland has been criticised... more...

  • Public Religious Disputation in England, 1558?1626by Joshua Rodda

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 124.95

    With a focus on England from the accession of Elizabeth I to the mid-1620s, this book examines the practice of direct, scholarly disputation between fundamentally opposing and oftentimes antagonistic Catholic, Protestant and nonconformist puritan divines. Introducing a form of discourse hitherto neglected in studies of religious controversy, the volume... more...

  • Archbishop Anselm 1093?1109by Sally N. Vaughn

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 49.95

    St Anselm's archiepiscopal career, 1093-1109, spanned the reigns of two kings: William Rufus and the early years of Henry I. As the second archbishop of Canterbury after the Norman Conquest, Anselm strove to extend the reforms of his teacher and mentor at Bec, and his predecessor at Canterbury, Archbishop Lanfranc. Exploring Anselm's thirty years... more...

  • A Kaleidoscope of Piecesby Alan Cadwallader

    ATF Press 2016; US$ 14.50

    "There has been considerable debate in recent years in the Anglican Church of Australia about issues of sexual diversity. To this end, two collections of essays have been published. The first, Five Uneasy Pieces, addressed the texts that have frequently been used to argue against the legitimacy of homosexual expression within Christian life and... more...

  • Archbishop Howley, 1828?1848by James Garrard

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 104.95

    William Howley, Archbishop of Canterbury 1828-1848, led the Church of England during the beginning and expansion of the Oxford Movement, at a time when the precursor to the Church Commissioners was established, and during the momentous debates and decisions in Parliament which saw the final retreat from the myth of an all Anglican legislature. Howley‚??s... more...

  • Archbishop Ramseyby Peter Webster

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 44.95

    Archbishop Michael Ramsey?s archiepiscopate from 1961 to 1974 saw profound renegotiations of the relationship of the Church of England with its own flock, with the nation more widely, with the Anglican church worldwide, and with the other Christian churches. Drawing from unique source material in the Lambeth Palace Library archives and reproducing... more...

  • The Anglican Imaginationby Robert Boak Slocum

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 104.95

    The variety and depth of Anglican theology is best engaged through personal encounter with its many sources - the theologians and theological witnesses themselves. Anglican theology is often worked out in personal terms that provide a synthesis between reflection on the truths of faith and the particular contexts of culture and life. This book presents... more...

  • The Search for Authority in Reformation Europeby Elaine Fulton; Helen Parish

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The 'problem of authority' was not an invention of the Protestant Reformation, but, as the essays contained in this volume demonstrate, its discussion, in ever greater complexity, was one of the ramifications (if not causes) of the deepening divisions within the Christian church in the sixteenth century. Any optimism that the principle of sola scriptura... more...
