Notes
"Anglican libraries in Canada have been little explored or studied. This is true for all periods and for all types of libraries. However, there is surviving evidence for personal libraries -- episcopal, clerical and perhaps even lay -- and institutional libraries -- college, school, diocesan, parochial, Sunday school and clericus (Dr. Bray's libraries). Were there perhaps other types ? The Canadian Church Historical Society is sponsoring a conference on historic Anglican libraries in Canada. It will be held in Montreal, Quebec, on Tuesday, 19 June 2007. A one-day conference is planned." "For further information, please contact: Dr. Richard Virr, Editor, Journal of the Canadian Church Historical Society, c/o Rare Books Division McGill University Library, 3459 McTavish Street, Montreal, Quebec H3A 1Y1 Email: richard.virr@mcgill.ca"

Notes
"On 19 June 2007, some twenty-five people gathered in Fulford Hall in the Synod Offices of the Diocese of Montreal to consider the history of Anglican libraries in Canada. Sponsored by the Canadian Church Historical Society, this conference brought scholarly attention to this subject for the first time in an organized way". Speakers included Richard Virr, Patricia Chalmers, Eric Swanick, Linda Corman, Peter F. McNally and Glenn Brown. "The papers, communications and additional notes will be published in a forthcoming number of the 'Journal of the Canadian Church Historical Society'." "It is to be hoped that this conference in Montreal marked just the beginning of on-going research into Anglican libraries in Canada".

Notes
"While both biography and, to some extent, a history of Medley's episcopate, it breaks new ground by providing a detailed examination of his theology. Based on his doctoral dissertation (University of Wales, Lampeter), Craig's book places Medley firmly in the context of his times first in England and then in colonial New Brunswick. Since the work of Canon Eugene Fairweather in the 1960s, Bishop Medley has been grouped firmly with the Tractarians. While he knew and was friends with many of the leaders of the Oxford Movement, Craig suggests and, indeed, demonstrates convincingly that Medley does not fit the traditional stereotype of a Tractarian and is better understood as a mid-nineteenth century High Churchman. While influenced by Tractarian teaching, as bishop he was faced with the problems posed by a colonial diocese and had to develop a theology of the church that addressed these realities " (p. 99-100). "Medley believed that reason had a central role to play in a Christian understanding of life. .... Medley tried to strike a balance between faith and reason that was fully awake to the challenges and questions of the age. Medley saw the church 'not [as] a refuge from modernity but [as] a dynamic body, capable of responding to modernity and adapting itself to new forms' (p. 177)" (p. 100). "A second point also emerges from Craig's study and this is Medley's changed understanding of the relation between church and state. ... Medley came to believe that the church had to free itself from both the fact and appearance of state support. In fact, it was the latter that was the most dangerous in that it offended non-Anglicans and misled Anglicans about their own responsibilities.. Medley came to see the Episcopal Church in the United States as a model that responded more adequately to the changed situation of the colonial church and synodical government as the way to build a strong local church, one in which bishop, clergy and laity all had their proper role" (p. 101).

Notes
"The Ontario Diocesan Library is currently held by the Ontario Diocesan Archives in Kingston, Ontario. There are approximately 470 titles in 800 volumes. The library apparently was established in the 1860s and continued to function until the early twentieth century. At least some of the books were the gift of the Associates of Dr. Bray, while others have the bookplate of Bishop John Travers Lewis. .... The Ontario Diocesan Archives holds accession and loan registers for the library and perhaps other documentation. The future of this library is under discussion. See the note on the library of Bishop Lewis in Section III, below". [N.B. This library was donated to Trinity College, University of Toronto, in 2014.]
