Full Homely Divinity

I am quite surprised that this site – Full Homely Divinity – hasn't been mentioned here.

It concentrates on the old folk traditions of English parish religion and spirituality, both in medieval English Catholicism and its survival in post-Reformation Anglicanism. I have often found this site useful for matters like Sarum Lenten Array (which I use) and things like hot cross buns on Good Friday and the Easter Sepulcre. Thus, liturgical rites fit in and harmonise with popular traditions.

This site (I don't know who is running it) is entirely non-polemical and irenic in its tone. It seems to be independent of "party interests". It supports the use of the Book of Common Prayer, but I see no sectarian objections to the use of the English, Anglican or Sarum missals.

Take a look at this site, and comments would be welcome.

Author: Fr. Anthony Chadwick

Father Anthony Chadwick was born in the north of England into an Anglican family. He was educated in one of the Church of England’s most well-known schools, St. Peter’s in York, at which he was nurtured in the Anglican musical tradition. After several years studying and working in London he studied theology at university level in Switzerland, Italy and France. Still living in France, he has been a priest of the Traditional Anglican Communion (under Archbishop Hepworth) since 2005. Fr. Chadwick is charged with chaplaincy work among dispersed Anglicans in the north of France, is married and lives in Normandy. His interests outside the Church and directly religious matters include classical music, DIY and sailing. As a non-stipendiary priest, he earns his living as a technical translator.

  1. Fr. Chadwick wouldn't be pleased with the dingbats at my local supermarket. They started selling hot cross buns about a fortnight ago. The commercialists here now run one commemoration right into the next.
