9781843835585: From the Reformation to the Permissive Society: A Miscellany in Celebration of the 400th Anniversary of Lambeth Palace Library (Church of England Record Society)

This volume of the Church of England Record Society, published in celebration of the 400th anniversary of the foundation of Lambeth Palace Library, is a tribute to the value of one of the world's great private libraries to the scholarly community and its importance for the history of the Church of England in particular. Thirteen historians, who have made considerable use of the Library in their research, have selected texts which together offer an illustration of the remarkable resources preserved by the Library for the period from the Reformation to the late twentieth century. A number of the contributions draw on the papers of the archbishops of Canterbury and bishops of London, which are among the most frequently used collections. Others come from the main manuscript sequence, including both materials originally deposited by Archbishop Sancroft and a manuscript published with the help of the Friends of Lambeth Palace Library in 2007. Another makes use of the riches to the papers of the Lambeth Conferences. Each text is accompanied by a substantial introduction, discussing its context and significance, and a full scholarly apparatus. The themes covered in the volume range from the famous dispute between Archbishop Grindal and Queen Elizabeth I, through the administration of the Church by Archbishop Laud and Archbishop Davidson's visit to the Western Front during World War I, to involvement of the Church in homosexual law reform.

Review:

Presents a lively and eclectic collection of documents, which have been thoughtfully selected and helpfully introduced. CHURCHMAN A fascinating insight into the richness of the archives at Lambeth Palace Library. THEOLOGY Many of the issues selected have resonance today, and many have compelling human interest. JOURNAL OF ECCLESIASTICAL HISTORY (A) splendid volume. the documents are reproduced with careful editorial skill and scholarly introductions. (...) It is a great record of Anglican attitudes, both official and personal; the prevailing tone is one of problems and difficulties faced and surmounted. (...) Its editors have gathered diverse and distant records into a volume that gives a unified picture of the development of our Church, beleaguered, but still in the service of God and the nation. THE CHURCH TIMES
