This site is dedicated to sharing the truth and beauty of classical Anglicanism. The theology of the Anglican formularies (Book of Common Prayer, Articles of Religion, Catechism, Ordinal, and Homilies) and the theology of the Anglican divines of the seventeenth century beautifully expresses the Catholic faith of the early Church, rooted in the Holy Scriptures. What this site sets about to do is to explore the heights and depths of Catholic Christianity by appealing to classical Anglicanism.
There is no shortage of websites on Anglicanism these days. The goal of this site is not just to be another blog, but to add something constructive to the conversation about Anglicanism’s past and its future.
This site is dedicated to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is under the patronage of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God. If you are interested in contributing to this project, send an email to conciliaranglican[at]gmail[dot]com.
The Rev. Jonathan A. Mitchican
Fr. Jonathan is the founder and head writer for The Conciliar Anglican. He is a parish priest serving in the Episcopal Church. He claims no special revelation and no special expertise. Mostly, he just reads what the early Anglican Reformers and Divines said about what they were doing and tries to share it with the world. He believes that if Lancelot Andrewes and Richard Hooker were alive today, they would be blogging.
