Toronto Conference "(Re) Making Anglican Traditions(s)" 23-27 June 2001


A major gathering for Anglican history, archives, and the arts will take place from Saturday, 23 June to Wednesday, 27 June 20001, in Toronto. The gathering is sponsored by four Anglican societies, and is hosted by Trinity and Wycliffe Colleges, the two Anglican theological schools in Toronto.

Entitled "(Re)Making Anglican Traditions(s) in North America," the conference will explore how Anglican expressions in North America, while retaining many continuities with the parent churches of Great Britain and Ireland, underwent remarkable changes in the transforming cultures of the new world.

The meetings are being held within a few days of the 300lh anniversary of the incorporation of the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts. The S.P.G. was the major sponsor of Anglican churches and ministers in America before the Revolutionary War, and in Canada and the West Indies well into the twentieth century.

The Most Reverend Dr. Michael Peers, a published historian and the primate of the Anglican Church of Canada is the keynote speaker. His address on the Monday evening, "Colonial Anglicanism: From Imperial to Episcopal", will reflect on how Anglicans in the new world re-shaped the theory and the practice of ecclesiastical authority and mission.

In addition, thirty scholars from four countries will deliver papers around nine major themes. Workshops for archivists and historians, demonstrations, church tours, displays, exhibitions, dramatic programs, multicultural worship services, an opening reception, and a conference banquet are also planned.

Papers include several on the S.P.G. and on its founder, Thomas Bray, as well as the following titles:

"The Book of Common Prayer as Indigenizing Agent for Anglican Tradition," C. Thomas Mclntire, University of Toronto

"John Sutcliffe, Architect to the American Episcopal Church," John M. Schnorrenberg, University of Alabama at Birmingham

"Susanna Wesley's Educational Method," Martha F. Bowden, Kennesaw State University

"Francis Perkins and the Religious Culture of the New Deal," Donn Mitchell, Episcopal Church Foundation

"Promoting Church History at the Local Level," Nancy Piatowski, Diocese of Western New York

"Nashville's Holy Trinity Church: An African-American Civil Heritage and Horizon", Patricia Foster, Tennessee State University

"Gender and Ordination in the Twentieth-Century Church of England," Jane Shaw, Regent's Park College

"American Episcopalian Women Missionaries in Nineteenth-Century China," Mei-Mei- Lin, National Oong Hwa University, Taiwan

"Ambiguous Meaning of Ministry for Deaconesses in the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago," Rima Lunin Schultz, Chicago

Plenary sessions will be held in the George Ignatieff Theatre of Trinity College, and most other events will be at or near Trinity. …
