The Book of Common Prayer provides that "Ornaments of the Church" and of her ministers, shall be "retained and in use" as in the second year of King Edward VI. This first of the Alcuin Club Tracts examines which ornaments were actually in use in that year, during the incessant changes of the English Reformation. It avoids both Low Church rigor and the indiscriminate adoption of ornaments in use in the Church of Rome, but never adopted in England or else abolished by 1549. The third edition, here reprinted, contains extensive addenda, including a caustic commentary on Archbishop Sandys' glossing of the Elizabethan legislation, which held that "retain and use" can mean "retain but not use".

The Filioque Impasse

Patristic Roots
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0403-7
A fascinating study of the underlying reasons for the disagreement over the clause “and the Son” in the Western version of the Niceno-Constantinopolitan creed, which contributed to the schism between Eastern and Western Christians. Coetzee argues that there has been a great deal of misunderstanding of the positions of each tradition by the other, partly due to the fact that East and West imbue certain key words, such as ‘person’ and ‘unity’, with different meanings which Coetzee believes come from different understandings of Hellenic philosophy. Against this backdrop, Coetzee sets about clearing up some of the misunderstandings.
