Summary:

What is the Anglican tradition, and when did it become 'traditional'? This course examines the liturgy of the historical church, focusing on theological issues as well as historical developments. Attention is given to major points of liturgical development through the 17th century in the Church of England, the Episcopal Church USA and the Anglican Church of Canada. This includes consideration of how texts, actions, sounds and space contributed to theology, identity and formation. The course also focuses on twentieth century prayer books in these traditions, with an emphasis on the theology of sacraments, worship, language, and inculturation. Practicums follow the class to equip students to lead the Eucharist, Daily Office and Pastoral Services in the BCP and BAS.
