Lancelot Andrews: Mentor of Reformed Catholicism in the Post Reformation English Church
by Marianne Dorman This book focuses on one of the most important preaching and teaching prelates in the post-Reformation Church in England, Lancelot Andrewes (15551626). As a prelate deeply grounded in the teachings as Patristics, he endeavored to uphold all that was wholesome in the Catholic religion after the reforms under the Tudors. Thus, he encouraged his contemporaries to live a faith based on sacramental and pious principles. He also encouraged an aesthetic approach to worship in the beauty of holiness. His teaching, preaching, and worship had a significant effect on many in his own days, and perhaps even more after his death in the revision of worship in prayer books in the Anglican Communion in our own times. This book, which reflects Ph.D. research undertaken in the 1990s, is of immense value to students and academics interested in the Reformation era in England, especially those who uphold the Catholic tradition in the English Church. ABOUT THE AUTHOR An Australian by birth, Marianne Dorman attended Oxford to continue her research on the Post-Reformation era in England. Apart from completing a Ph.D. she was involved in many church and educational activities. During this time she began her writing career, which now includes a trilogy of day-to-day reflections from Advent to Pentecost, a book on George Herbert, and three others about Lancelot Andrewes. At present she lives in the small village of Greenbank on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound on the northwest coast of America.
