Cover title: A new spirit: the Archbishop of Canterbury's visit to Rome 1996.
"The joint declaration signed by the Archbishop and the Pope and the homilies preached during the visit do not sidestep the difficulties in our relationships, but courageously call for deepened theological dialogue and further consultation 'about how the relationship between the Anglican Communion and the Catholic Church is to progress'. Anglicans and Roman Catholics, sisters and brother in Christ, can see in this historic visit inspired leadership from the Pope and the Archbishop proclaiming afresh our goal of full visible unity". -- Preface.
