Product description

The subject of this book by one of the Church of England's most respected Anglo-Catholic priests could hardly be more central. The rekindling of devotion to Mary has been one of the many gifts of the Catholic movement to the Church of England, and there are few better exponents of it than Roger Greenacre. He was keen to foster a greater appreciation of Mary among Anglicans, as part of a renewed emphasis on the Church of England's catholic identity and relationship with the wider Church. He traces the way that Mary has been perceived throughout Anglican history, from patterns of Marian devotion in the Middle Ages to her portrayal in today's liturgical texts, and examines her role in ecumenical dialogue. In a selection of homilies he presents Mary to an Anglican and ecumenical audience. The book opens with a biographical account of Roger Greenacre's life and work by his literary executor, Colin Podmore.

Author information

Roger Greenacre was a scholarly and much-loved Anglican priest and Benedictine oblate who exercised a distinguished ministry in London, Paris and Chichester, and on the French Riviera. His contribution to Anglican-RC relations was honoured by the French state and earned him a Lambeth Doctorate. A residentiary canon of Chichester Cathedral for 25 years, he taught church history and liturgy at the theological college there and served on the Liturgical Commission. He died in 2011.
