Episode 2

Fr. Isaac and Jesse continue to read and discuss a classic essay on the character of Anglican theology.

The Spirit of Anglicanism is an essay by Paul Elmer More which appears in the volume Anglicanism: the thought and practice of the Church of England, of which More was co-editor. This volume is a compilation of excerpts from original works from a variety of 17th Century Anglican divines. More’s essay provides a sort of guide to the logic behind the composition of the volume and also provides More’s own interpretation of Anglicanism itself and especially the importance of the 17th century.

Although Anglicanism is currently out of print (again), you can find a digital copy online here, and paper copies can usually be found online too.
