Excerpt from Lives of the Archbishops of Canterbury: From St. Augustine to Juxon
Uses. In the words of the Prayer Book, there had been great diversity in saying and singing in the churches of this realm, some following Salisbury use, some Hereford use, and some the use of Bangor, some of York, some of Lincoln. It was a grand idea, to determine upon the adoption of one use for the entire Church. A step was taken in advance when the two Prayer Books of Edward VI. Were adopted. But we may regard it as a provi dential mercy, that the reformers of that reign were obliged to leave their work incomplete, for it is impossible to conjecture the extent to which the weakness of Cran mer and his coadj utors would have carried them in the way of concession, (especially when they called in the aid of foreigners,) if they had not been stopped in their career. A wise course was adopted on the accession of Queen Elizabeth, at the instigation of Parker, when the Prayer Books of Edward VI. Were made the basis of the public formularies adopted in the reign of the great queen Parker not seeking to please foreigners or sects in commu nion with them, but to adhere to positive truth. The Prayer Book then established remained in force until its further and final reformation, through the amendments adopted by the two Convocations of Canterbury and York, was ratified by the Act of Uniformity under King Charles II.
The Prayer Book th en reformed has continued un changed to the present time. Hereafter we may see, in the suspension of Convocation during the greater part of the last century, anoth er providential mercy extend ed to the Church in this land, by preventing alterations sug gested by the Latitudinarians and political primates.
