The Book of Common Prayer is arguably Anglicanism’s greatest contribution to the Christian Church. In this class, the Rev. Dr. Kevin J. Moroney, Associate Professor of Liturgics at General Seminary, leads the Sunday class through a discussion of the background and structure of the first two editions of the Book of Common Prayer, published in 1549 and 1552. This study reveals how the theological issues of the English Reformation influenced Thomas Cranmer and others as they developed this foundational text for nearly all subsequent Anglican worship.
