The First Book of Common Prayer
The Act of Uniformity passed by the House of Lords on January 15th, 1549, abolished the Latin mass in England. Prayers in English had already been included in the Latin services, and complete English services had been introduced at St Paul’s and other London churches, but now for the first time the only legal services throughout the country were to be those in English provided in the new Book of Common Prayer, which was issued with the Act. The new book was approved by a committee of thirteen clerics who had met during the previous September and October. It was drafted by Thomas Cranmer, who had been working privately on a new liturgy for several years and whose prose has been one of the glories of the English language ever since.
A permanent feature of the Church of England’s worship and a key source for its doctrine, the Book of Common Prayer is loved for the beauty of its language and its services are widely used.
