A review of the history, mandate and working of the Lambeth Commission which was established by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, following the meeting of the Primates of the Anglican Communion in Lambeth Palace, London, in October 2003. "The primates made it quite clear that the issue they wanted addressed by the Commission centred on questions of communion not sex: given the standard of teaching, adopted on human sexuality at the Lambeth Conference 1998, how could the Communion maintain the `highest degree of communion possible' in the face of the consecration of a bishop [Gene Robinson of New Hampshire] whose lifestyle challenged that teaching. The situation in New Westminster, which up to that point had occupied much time in the councils of the Communion, was added to its work, but very much in the shadow of this new development". The commission was chaired by Archbishop Robin Eames and held three plenary residential meetings including one at St. George's College in Windsor, England, and one at the Kanuga Conference Center in North Carolina.
