Abstract

This chapter discusses the problem of discipline and diversity within the Church of England, exploring the proposals for Prayer Book revision in the 1920s. It suggests that there was an uneasy tension in the revision proposals, which aimed to both enlarge comprehensiveness and strengthen discipline with the Church. The paper analyses the role of ecclesiastical authority and Anglican identity, suggesting that the controversy over revision provides a longer historical perspective for current debates within the Anglican Church.
