A Liturgical Glossary

Compiled by Michael Sansom
ISBN: 978-1-60724-351-9
Liturgy is a subject which very quickly throws up a barrage of unfamiliar words to defeat the student, the lay enquirer—and even a good many clergy. The basis of this glossary was a simple word list compiled for students in the Cambridge Federation of Theological Colleges, but it has been expanded and rewritten by students at Ridley Hall.

Celebrating Forgiveness

An original text drafted by Michael Vasey
ISBN: 978-1-60724-348-9
This Liturgical Study is dedicated to the memory of Michael Vasey, liturgy tutor at St John's College, Durham (1975-1998), and a member of the Church of England's Liturgical Commission (1985-1998), who died in June 1998. It reproduces the text which he originally drafted for the Commission in the early 1990s, as amended both by the Commission and by the House of Bishops, on which discussion was effectively suspended in 1995. At that stage the Commission propsed to further the discussion on penitence and reconciliation in the church by publishing its proposed text together with some background essays, but the project, which Michael was to have edited, was halted by his untimely death.

The Savoy Conference Revisited

The proceedings taken from the Grand Debate of 1661 and the works of Richard Baxter
Edited with an Introduction by Colin Buchanan
ISBN: 978-1-60724-403-5
The records of the Savoy Conference come from seventeenth century sources, and they were edited and reproduced in two nineteenth century volumes: E.Cardwell's A History of Conferences and Other Proceedings connected with the Revision of The Book of Common Prayer; from the year 1558 to the year 1690 (1841, and 2nd ed. 1849) and G.Gould, Documents relating to the Settlement of the Church of England by the Act of Uniformity of 1662 (London, 1862). Both present the Presbyterians' 'Exceptions' tabled at the Savoy Conference in 1661, and the Bishops' (somewhat unyielding) Answers to the Exceptions - but neither editor brings the texts together. This Joint Study presents the General Exceptions in parallel column with their respective Answers.
