Review by Peter Webster forthcoming.


The Anglican Communion is the third largest Christian denomination and claims a membership of some 80 million members in about 164 countries. Given that there are only around two hundred countries in the world, this makes the churches of the Anglican Communion the most geographically widespread denomination after Roman Catholicism.

  • Features 44 authoritative essays by leading scholars.
  • Explains why Anglican Studies is a new and underdeveloped discipline in such a large and diverse set of churches.
  • Embraces a wide range of academic disciplines: theological; historical; demography and geography; and different aspects of culture and ethics.
  • A valuable contribution to Anglican Studies and helps formulate a discipline that might perhaps promote dialogue and discussion across the Anglican world.
  • Demarcates a new field of denominational studies at a time when Anglican Communion is threatened with internal schism.
