Course Description: 

A survey of the major developments in British Anglican theology, church history and ecclesiology from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. This course is a companion to Anglican History and Theology II: ECUSA and the Anglican Communion, making a two-semester study of the historical evolution and theological traditions of Anglicanism; the two courses may be taken in any order, although there is some advantage to beginning here. The primary aim of the course is to analyze and to make a constructive theological assessment of classical Anglican tradition and its modern forms, both as an examination of the enduring nature of Anglicanism and as a pastoral and spiritual resource for Christian life and ministry. It is expected that Rel. 712 and 713 or their equivalents have already have been completed; Rel 714 is strongly encouraged as well.
