Richard Hooker, Apostle of Anglicanism

  • Course Dates: Thu 6 June, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Richard Hooker (1554-1600) is rightly described as the seminal theologian of the Church of England.

The first ecclesial theologian to attempt to plot a genuine ‘middle-way’ between the more aggressive Protestantisms of the European Continent and the often defensive rigidities of 16th century Roman Catholicism.

He stands above all for the wisdom of the Anglican ‘middle-way’. His theology is deeply grounded both in scripture and in the ‘catholic’ and cosmic vision of early Christianity. At the same time he stands at the dawn of the Enlightenment and suggests a way of Christian living that is human, humane and socially responsible. He has much to teach us as we confront the apparently intractable divisions in the life of the church and of society.

This study day will focus on Hooker’s vision of God, his understanding of scripture, worship and its relation to human community and how his vision might be taken forward today.
