Church architecture is a contentious ﬁeld of inquiry. Polemics, dog-
matism, and caricature abound. It would be unrealistic to think any
book could resolve the controversies, but a fresh look at the most
basic questions about churches, their meanings and their uses, may
prove useful to all sides. The incentive to write this book was mixed:
it grew out of historical interest, but also out of an urge to see more
clearly what churches have meant and what they can mean for com-
munities that build and use them.
Bishop Harper and the Canterbury Settlement. PRESS NOTICES Original Edition. "We are glad to welcome this book. It has been very well written; it is interesting throughout; one's attention never flags; it is exactly what was wanted by churchmen, and should be on the book-shelf of every churchman in at least this Colony.... We simply advise every one of our readers to buy it and read it, and let their boys and girls read it too." Auckland Church Gazette. "One reads it as eagerly as though it were a novel."
To my Venerable Brothers the Cardinals, Patriarchs, Archbishops, Bishops, Priests, Deacons and to all the People of God.
Twenty years ago, work began on the Catechism of the Catholic Church that had been requested by the extraordinary Assembly of the Synod of Bishops held on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the close of the Second Vatican Council. I am filled with heartfelt thanks to the Lord God for having given the Church this Catechism, promulgated in 1992 by my venerated and beloved Predecessor, Pope John Paul II....
Tradition, originating in the desire to account for the name of the town, would assign the foundation of a cell
or chapel to Theoc, or in Latin form Theocus, in or about 655. In support of this theory Camden and others
assert that it was called in Anglo-Saxon times Theocsburg or Theotisbyrg. Others would derive the name from
the Greek "Theotokos," as the Church is dedicated to St. Mary, and others again refer us back to a very early
name, Etocisceu--Latinised as Etocessa.
"Mr. Ragg has produced something far better than a mere text-book: the earlier chapters especially are
particularly interesting reading. The whole book is well proportioned and scholarly, and gives the reader the
benefit of wide reading of the latest authorities. The contrasted growth and fortunes of the Judaic Church of
Jerusalem and the Church of the Gentiles are particularly clearly brought out."--Church Times.
"Written in a clear and interesting style, and summaries the early records of the growth of the Christian
community during the first century."--_Irish Ecclesiastical Gazette.
Until the middle of the nineteenth century, Peterborough remained one of the most unchanged examples in the
kingdom of the monastic borough. The place was called into existence by the monastery and was entirely
dependent on it. The Abbot was supreme lord, and had his own gaol. He possessed great power over the
whole hundred. And even after the See of Peterborough was constituted, and the Abbey Church became a
cathedral, many of the ancient privileges were retained by the newly formed Dean and Chapter.
Paragraph 4. Christ's Faithful - Hierarchy, Laity, Consecrated Life
871 "The Christian faithful are those who, inasmuch as they have been incorporated in Christ through Baptism, have been constituted as the people of God; for this reason, since they have become sharers in Christ's priestly, prophetic, and royal office in their own manner, they are called to exercise the mission which God has entrusted to the Church to fulfill in the world, in 385 accord with the condition proper to each one.
Norwich Cathedral stands on the site of no earlier church: it is to-day, in its plan and the general bulk of its
detail, as characteristically Norman as when left finished by the hand of Eborard, the second bishop of
In gathering material for this handbook I have received valuable help from several friends, whose kindness
calls for grateful recognition. My thanks are due, in the first place, to the Rev. W. F. G. Sandwith, Rector of
St. Bartholomew-the-Great, and the lay custodians of the church, for the facilities which have allowed me to
examine the building in all its parts, and for the readiness with which they have given information, not
accessible elsewhere, on various points of its history and architecture.
The details of the founding of the cathedral of Carlisle are very precise and clear.
When William Rufus returned southwards after re-establishing the city of Carlisle, he left as governor a rich
Norman priest named Walter. He began at once to build a church to be dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary,
which was to have in connection with it a college of secular canons. Walter did not, however, live to see the
building finished, and Henry I. took it upon himself to complete the good work. It is said that his wife on one
hand, and his chaplain on the other, urged him to...
I cannot permit this Edition of "The Ancient Church" to appear before the citizens of the United States
without acknowledging my obligations to Mr Charles Scribner of New York. Mr Scribner was the first
gentleman connected with the noble profession to which he belongs, either in the Old or in the New World,
from whom I received encouragement in this undertaking; and his prompt and generous offers aided me
materially in making arrangements for the publication of the work in Great Britain.
It is proper that I give some reasons for the publication of this paper. The importance of the subject of the
ecclesiastical organization of the churches gathered in heathen lands, I conceive to be a sufficient reason.
Those who may differ in regard to the views set forth in this paper, will not dispute the importance of the

At the Church Congress held this autumn at Birmingham I was honoured by an invitation to speak on “Sexual Relationships.” The subject-matter of that speech has aroused widespread interest and some controversy. It is being published in response to numerous requests and because most of the reports, being of necessity condensed, inadequately and even in some instances incorrectly set forth the views I endeavoured to champion; for any speech on a subject so difficult to handle needs to be read in its entirety if misapprehensions are to be avoided. ...
This is blatantly unbiblical. Those involved in the
Pelagian controversies of the early church centuries debated
this over and over, and came to the conclusion that man is a
sinner by nature, and that his sinful actions stem from what he
is. Further, sin permeated all of man's being. The prophet
Jeremiah summed it up this way: "The heart is more deceitful
than all else and is desperately sick" (Jer. 17:9)! Paul clearly
teaches that, through Adam's one transgression, this innate
sinfulness (sin nature) was passed to all of his descendants
(Rom. 5:18; 1 Cor. 15:22).
It is neither possible, nor desirable, within the limits of a book of this size and scope, to go fully into the
question, interesting though it be, of the relative claims of Aldred and Serlo to the honour of the first building
of the Abbey of Gloucester.
Unlike many of our cathedral cities, "Royal" Winchester has a secular history of the greatest importance,
which not only is almost inextricably interwoven with the ecclesiastical annals down to a comparatively
recent date, but should at times occupy the foremost position in the records of the place. To attempt, however,
to trace the story of the city as well as that of the cathedral would be to recapitulate the most important facts of
the history of England during those centuries when Winchester was its capital town.
The usual mode of capital punishment in England for many centuries has been, and still is, hanging. Other
means of execution have been exercised, but none have been so general as death at the hands of the hangman.
In the Middle Ages every town, abbey, and nearly all the more important manorial lords had the right of
hanging, and the gallows was to be seen almost everywhere.
Representatives of the church often possessed rights in respect to the gallows and its victims.
