The Book of Common Prayer

The 1662 Book of Common Prayer is fundamental to the identity of the Church of England not simply because it was THE only liturgy of the Church for nearly 300 years and continues to be the normative liturgy of the Church today but also because it is part of the doctrinal basis of the Church. Moreover, most of the Provinces of the Anglican Communion also have the 1662 Book as part of their own identity.
