Centre for Anglican History and Theology

Featured story

The reading group examines a range of inter-disciplinary texts on Anglican history and theology.

This page presents the reading texts and a short comment by the respective reading group chair for each monthly text. The aim is to provide an insight into the reading group discussion and questions, rather than a formal book review. For previous reading group texts and comments see the academic year links above and for current reading group texts, see the Events, Reading Group link.
