This year the Church of England will celebrate the 350th anniversary of the publication of the Book of Common Prayer (BCP). The BCP has had an enormous influence not only in the Church of England, where it remains the official standard liturgy of the church, but also more widely in our nation. This symposium was planned with the Church of England as a major occasion to mark the anniversary with a series of academic reflections which bring together leading scholars covering a range of historical, liturgical and ecclesiological topics.
Chair: the Rt Revd Stephen Platten, Bishop of Wakefield
Professor Paul Bradshaw (University of Notre Dame, Indiana)
The Rev Canon Professor Paul Avis (University of Exeter)
