Power and the Church of England text

This series is a joint venture of the Michael Ramsey Centre for Anglican Studies at Durham University and the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at Lancaster University.

Our aim is to explore

  • the many forms of power that shape the life of the Church of England
  • the ways in which these forms of power shape people’s experience in and around the Church
  • the various accounts of power (theological and sociological, for instance) that circulate in and around the Church
  • what it means for power to be exercised in healthy ways, and
  • the nature and impact of the misuse and abuse of power
