Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology

benjamin
The list author says: "Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology is the most important development in Anglican publishing in the last 20 years. Attractively bound and introduced by some of Anglicanism's major scholars, these volumes portray the writings of some of Anglicanism's finest theologians. The title of the series, however, points to the fact that "spiritual theology" is as much about the heart as it is about the mind - an ideal that Anglicans have long held and, one hopes, will be assisted by this series in returning to."

"Volume One: the last great synthesizer of Anglicanism, Michael Ramsey was the Archbishop of Canterbury from 1961 - 1974.  He was deeply involved in ecumenical relations with both Roman Catholics and Orthodox Christians, and felt a deep desire to draw together Protestants as well.  This is an excellent introduction to Michael Ramsey's Spiritual Theology."
The Anglican Spirit: Seabury Classics
The Anglican Spirit: Seabury Classics
"A collection of lectures delivered at Nashotah House by Michael Ramsey after his retirement, this is the finest introduction to post-Reformation Anglicanism that you will find.  Theological and historical, this volume looks back to the past and forward, as well."
Glory!: The Spiritual Theology of Michael Ramsey
Glory!: The Spiritual Theology of Michael Ramsey
"This is an excellent essay on the various facets of Michael Ramsey's theology, which show that his ecumenical focus existed as it did precisely because he was so deeply rooted in his Anglican tradition."
The Truth-Seeking Heart (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
The Truth-Seeking Heart (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Two: considered by many to have been the most brilliant Anglican theologian of the 20th century, Farrer's writings are worth their weight in gold.  In this reader, every other sentence is a theological jewel."
Light in a Burning-glass: A Systematic Presentation of Austin Farrer's Theology
Light in a Burning-glass: A Systematic Presentation of Austin Farrer's Theology
"One of many secondary works on Farrer, Slocum shows a clear mastery of the material that makes reading his dissemination simply fun.  Farrer emerges as the rigorous theologian that he was, whose pastoral heart was fully joined philosophical mind."
Firmly I Believe (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
Firmly I Believe (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Three: what we think of today as Anglicanism begins with the Oxford Movement, which started off as a political protest against the English government's interference with the Church of England, but grew to give a coherent understanding of the bishop - not the monarch - as the leader of the local church."
The Oxford Movement: A Thematic History of the Tractarians and Their Times
The Oxford Movement: A Thematic History of the Tractarians and Their Times
"This is probably the best general introduction to the Oxford Movement that you will find.  Clearly written, historically oriented and thematically organized, Faught's fine volume is as easy to read as it is informative."
The Oxford Movement in Context: Anglican High Churchmanship, 1760-1857
The Oxford Movement in Context: Anglican High Churchmanship, 1760-1857
"Perhaps the most important book on the Oxford Movement written in the past 20 years, Nockles does a fine job detailing the political and theological shapes of the Oxford Movement, and the ways that they both were in continuity and discontinuity with their Anglican predecessors."
To Build Christ's Kingdom (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
To Build Christ's Kingdom (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Four: the founder of Christian Socialism in the mid-19th century, Maurice was unique in his time for combining a strong sense of the need for social justice with a profound Prayer Book-based piety that wove together the scriptural and the sacramental in a truly harmonious fashion."
F D Maurice and the Crisis of Christian Authority (Christian Theology in Context)
F D Maurice and the Crisis of Christian Authority (Christian Theology in Context)
"The most recent volume on the founder of Christian Socialism, this sets Maurice in the context of the major theological shifts of his day.  Morris may very well emerge as the interpreter of Maurice for the present generation."
The Victorian Christian Socialists
The Victorian Christian Socialists
"In many ways, this book is a collection of biographical sketches of major Christian Socialists of the 19th and early 20th centuries.  Not exclusively (but nonetheless predominately) Anglican in its focus, it ought to be read by every Anglican interested in his or her tradition."
The Sacramental Life: Gregory Dix and his Writings (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
The Sacramental Life: Gregory Dix and his Writings (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Five: Gregory Dix was the most important Anglican liturgist since Archbishops Thomas Cranmer and William Laud.  Dix's influence extended well beyond Anglicanism, and influence Roman Catholics and Methodists, among other Protestants.  This fine collection reaches beyond Dix's best-known work, The Shape of the Liturgy, and brings forth many now-forgotten but important pieces of his writing."
The Shape of the Liturgy, New Edition
The Shape of the Liturgy, New Edition
"This is Gregory Dix's most important book.  This shows precisely how Anglicanism has long been buoyed by both critical scholarly inquiry and a sense of the need for fidelity to the past."
Happiness and Holiness (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
Happiness and Holiness (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Six.  Traherne was one of the great poet-theologians of the Restoration (late-17th century) period in Anglican history.  Many of his works were believed lost, however, until the early 20th century, when they were found.  The influence, therefore, of this well respected poet upon Anglicanism has been muted; this volume, however, looks to begin changing that."
Wanting Like a God: Desire and Freedom in the Works of Thomas Traherne
Wanting Like a God: Desire and Freedom in the Works of Thomas Traherne
"This will prove to be a foundational monograph on Traherne for years to come.  Inge writes with clarity, grace, and theological understanding, placing Traherne in his historical, Anglican context, as well as that of the wider Christian tradition."
Before the King's Majesty (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
Before the King's Majesty (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Seven: Andrewes is best known, perhaps, due to an essay written by T. S. Eliot.  Andrewes was one of the editors of the King James Bible, a great preacher and, as was learned after his the death, the composer of eloquent liturgical poetry, and Anglicanism today is very much a product of his influence."
Lancelot Andrewes and His Private Devotions
Lancelot Andrewes and His Private Devotions
"Andrewes's famous Preces Privatae (Private Prayers) belong, in full, on the bookshelf of every serious Anglican.  These are among the most eloquent and moving prayers in the Anglican tradition."
Selected Prose of T.S. Eliot
Selected Prose of T.S. Eliot
"In Eliot's famous essay 'Lancelot Ancrewes,' he writes that Andrewes's sermons rank "with the finest English prose of their time, of any time."  That essay may be found in this volume, along with others of Anglican and English literary interest."
Heaven in Ordinary: George Herbert and His Writings (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
Heaven in Ordinary: George Herbert and His Writings (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Eight: a very nice introduction to the poet that Anglicans refer to as "Divine Herbert," due to the belief, which originated in Herbert's own lifetime, that his theology was inspired by the Holy Spirit."
Theory and Theology in George Herbert's Poetry: "Divinitie, and Poesie, Met" (Oxford Theology and Religion Monographs)
Theory and Theology in George Herbert's Poetry: "Divinitie, and Poesie, Met" (Oxford Theology and Religion Monographs)
"An influential volume that places Herbert in his historical context, paying attention both the theological and devotional trends, as well as to beliefs about poetry in the English Renaissance."
Law and Revelation: Richard Hooker and His Writings (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
Law and Revelation: Richard Hooker and His Writings (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Nine: focuseing upon Richard Hooker, the father of Anglican theology, this volume features key selections from all eight books of Hooker's unfinished work, Of the Lawes of Ecclesiasticall Politie (which we might modernize as The Laws of Church Government).  Chapman's selections are excellent, providing readers with the finest primary-source introduction to Hooker currently available."
Richard Hooker and the Construction of Christian Community (Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies)
Richard Hooker and the Construction of Christian Community (Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies)
"A companion volume to the Folger Library Edition of Hooker's complete works, the essays in this volume cover topics such as politics, rhetoric, and theology.  If you want just one secondary source on Hooker, make it this one."
Christ Alive and at Large: The Unpublished Writings of C. F. D. Moule (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
Christ Alive and at Large: The Unpublished Writings of C. F. D. Moule (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Ten: Canterbury Press pushes and enriches the boundaries of Anglican memory by incorporating into their collection one of the twentieth century's greatest Biblical scholars.  This volume is eagerly anticipated."
The Origin of Christology
The Origin of Christology
"A classic work on early Christian doctrinal development that sought to take seriously both the historical evidence and the conclusions reached by the orthodox. This monograph received the Collins Biennial Religious Book Award in 1977."
Beauty of Holiness: The Caroline Divines and Their Writings (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
Beauty of Holiness: The Caroline Divines and Their Writings (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Eleven: I am, no doubt, a bit biased, but the goal of this volume is to offer a portrait of Caroline-era divinity without the later lenses imposed - sometimes fairly, sometimes not - by the nineteenth-century Anglo-Catholic movement. Sacral monarchy, devotional poetry, and attention to the comparative European confessional context  all find a place here."
The Cult of King Charles the Martyr (Studies in Modern British Religious History)
The Cult of King Charles the Martyr (Studies in Modern British Religious History)
"King Charles I was the first canonized Anglican saint, and was added to the 1662 Calendar of Saints as King Charles the Martyr. Far more than people realize, Charles and his later cultus gave us Anglicanism as we know it today: liturgical beauty and dignity, a rich devotional life, and a strong tradition (at least, until recently) of political theology."
The Practical Mystic (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
The Practical Mystic (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Twelve: Evelyn Underhill was the great female lay writer of the early twentieth century, and her writings, particularly her volume Mysticism, had influence far beyond Anglicanism. This is a fine introduction to Underhill, who continues to be a subject of considerable interest."
The Life of Evelyn Underhill: An Intimate Portrait of the Groundbreaking Author of Mysticism (Skylight Lives)
The Life of Evelyn Underhill: An Intimate Portrait of the Groundbreaking Author of Mysticism (Skylight Lives)
"This is the early, classic biography of Underhill, complete with an introduction by Dana Greene, Underhill's most recent biographer."
God Truly Worshipped (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
God Truly Worshipped (Canterbury Studies in Spiritual Theology)
"Volume Thirteen: Archbishop Cranmer's liturgical reforms shaped the Anglican tradition quite profoundly into the mid-late twentieth century. No liturgy, however, stands alone, and this volume contains personal correspondence, theological writings, and doctrinal statements."
Signs of God's Promise: Thomas Cranmer's Sacramental Theology and the Book of Common Prayer
Signs of God's Promise: Thomas Cranmer's Sacramental Theology and the Book of Common Prayer
"This is the most recent study of Cranmer's liturgical theology - and it is brilliantly well done. If you want just one secondary source on Cranmer, this is the volume for you. Jeanes is immensely sensitive to what Cranmer was trying to do, and happily this results in a historical Cranmer who stands well outside of the petty squabbles of later church parties."
