The official launch has taken place of the first ever multi-volume history of worldwide Anglicanism to be published by a major university press. The Oxford History of Anglicanism, in five volumes, covers the growth of worldwide Anglicanism with more than 100 international scholars contributing. Three volumes have appeared already and a further two are due later this year.
The person who had the idea for these volumes is Professor Rowan Strong, who oversaw the whole ten year process and worked with the individual editors, as well as being the editor of the third volume. He comes from Anglican Church of Australia, and teaches at Murdoch University in Perth.
