"The purpose of this book is to offer a survey of the whole Anglican Communion. A short time ago Canon McLeod Campbell, in his fascinating 'Christian History in the Making', traced the history of that Communion in the course of its formation. We wish to take up the story where he left it, and to present a bird's-eye view of the finished product, or at least of that product at the stage of development it has reached to-day. It is hoped that the publication will at least be found timely. The meetings of the Lambeth Conference have always been important since their inception in 1867. .... Also it should help the various branches of the Anglican Communion to know each other better. Such knowledge is all too obviously lacking at the moment. .... The following survey should thus lead to a more exact and widespread knowledge of what the Anglican Communion us. There will be some gain if it is no longer confused with the Church of England. It includes the Church, but is not identical with it." -- Intro., p. vii.

"In early 2001, Her Majesty's Ambassador to the Holy See, Mark Pellew, approached [the editor] with the proposal that an exhibition (probably sited in the Vatican Museums) should be prepared alongside a two-day colloquium. The subject matter would be the history of the Church of England and of Anglicanism world-wide. Knowledge of Anglicanism in mainland Europe is fairly sparse and this would be an important educational exercise as well as contributing to progress in deepening Anglican-Roman Catholic relations. The suggestion was that the exhibition and colloquium might focus on an English cathedral as a case study and that the cathedral choir might also come to Rome to offer living music from the English cathedral choral tradition. Norwich Cathedral was a good starting point". -- Preface.
"The [nine] papers presented in the colloquium at the Gregorian University in Rome in June 2002, and the large body of recent work which these papers represent, offer a significant contribution to future Anglican-Catholic relations". -- Foreword, pp. viii-ix.

"A few months before he died Dr. Garbett, then Archbishop of York, expressed the hope that I would write a book 'in praise of the Church of England'. .... Owing to other literary commitments it was impossible at the time to comply with his suggestion. Later, however, I was invited to lecture on Anglicanism in Ireland, Canada, USA and to various clerical bodies in England. The lectures were delivered ex tempore and in anything but literary form. When, however, the present publishers asked for a volume on the Anglican Communion for their new series, it seemed that it might be worth while to build on the basis of these lectures and so at least fulfil the request of one's old friend and colleague. It will be noted that the subject as now treated covers a far wider area than the Church of England. Indeed, one of the points we shall have to notice is the changing position of our national Church in relation to the whole Anglican Communion. But the subject is wider in another sense. One would like to treat the Idea of Anglicanism in much the same way as Newman dealt with the Idea of a Universality, regarding the institution as the embodiment of an ideal, a spirit, a 'weltanschauung'. .... This must also be the excuse if it is complained, as it may well be, that the book is too English. The fact is that for good or ill the Anglican Communion is too English. The fact is that for good or ill the Anglican Communion does still reflect the prevailing influence of its British origins. That it may not always continue to do so, one may believe and even hope. The signs of change are already with us. After all, is not the Executive Officer of the whole Anglican Communion an American Bishop ?" -- Preface.

"Elizabeth I deliberately divided her episcopate at the outset of her reign between Geneva reformers and bishops who looked to the Fathers of the Early Church. Thereafter in the Church of England there would always be divines who would be drawn to the Orthodox East. Such men suffered mightily in the 17th century at the hands of first Puritans and then Whigs when these gained political power, and their suffering impelled them more and more to `look to the East'. This book traces the fortunes of that quest, through the study of Greek texts, involvement in the intricate politics of the Near and Middle East, deprivation and isolation in the Nonjuror schism (a precursor of `Continuing Anglicanism' ?) and finally the rejection by the Greek Patriarchs of requests for Orthodox Communion in the 1720s". -- back cover.

"Anglicanism has a great tradition of spirituality, different from Roman Catholic or Protestant traditions. It began at the time of the Reformation when Anglicanism, as such, really came into existence; and it has continued right down to the present day. This book is an attempt to tell the story, from the time of the First Prayer Book onwards, to show how people loved and served God with deep devotion". -- Foreword.

"In 1944 the S.C.M. Press published 'The Free Church Tradition in the Life of England', by Ernest A. Payne. I was asked to write a companion volume on the Anglican Tradition. .... There are many short books on Anglican history, giving the main outline of events and movements, and I did not think that another brief summary would be useful. I have therefore written a 'historical essay' rather than a 'short history'. A great many facts, names, events which would necessarily be found in a 'history' will not be found here: there is commentary rather than narrative, and rightly or wrongly, I have been ruthless in omission of a great deal that is both important and interesting". -- Preface.
