Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

For the English people, the Venerable Bede set the example accepting both commoners and noblemen into their monastic schools. In his Ecclesiatical History of the English People  we see the example of accepting those who want to learn without the cumbersome barriers of the cloister. Thus, like Bede, Cranmer offers in the devotion of the prayerbook "uncloistered" access to the wisdom of the scriptures and English asceticism.

From the Back Cover

Cranmer's Book of Common Prayer was introduced to the Western world just as the printing press was transforming the way books were published. In England, large manuscript service books and missals reflecting the various rites and ceremonies of the local tradition were replaced by a single simple text. Just as the early monastic communities would gather to recite pieces of scripture from memory, so too does the modern Western culture in the collective influence that the language of the Book of Common Prayer has had on the post-Reformation world.
