Excerpt from English Orders for Consecrating Churches in the Seventeenth Century: Together With Forms for the Consecration of Churchyards, the First Stone of a Church, the Reconciliation of a Church and the Consecration of Altar PlateTwenty yearsMoreExcerpt from English Orders for Consecrating Churches in the Seventeenth Century: Together With Forms for the Consecration of Churchyards, the First Stone of a Church, the Reconciliation of a Church and the Consecration of Altar PlateTwenty years ago, when the Henry Bradshaw Society was founded, a study of the orders used in the Consecration of Churches was one of the promises made to our members.

This work is an attempt to fulfil that promise- but it may also, perhaps, be considered as a supplement to the treatise of our President, the Bishop of Salisbury, on the Rite of Consecration of Churches, especially in the Church of England, which he read as a paper before the Church Historical Society on December 8, 1898, and which was published by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge in the following year.It is gratifying to be able to remark that one of the chief points insisted upon by our President in his paper, that the solemn celebration of the Eucharist by the bishop is of the essence or substance of the rite of consecration, receives full support from the practice of the seventeenth century English bishops.It would seem at first sight that one of the most fruitful sources of the texts of the Forms and Orders of the Consecrations of Churches in the seventeenth century would be the episcopal registers.

But it is not so for many reasons. First, the destruction or disappearance of these registers representing long stretches of time, or for the whole seventeenth century- as at Lincoln, Durham, and Bristol. Secondly, the disappearance of the registers of particular bishops- as of Andrewes at Winchester and Mountain at London. Thirdly, the imperfect information concerning the rite in those registers where the fact of the consecration is mentioned- as at London where the consecration of new St. Olaves and of a chapel for Lord Bridge water, and at Exeter where the consecration of the chapel of St.

Charles, the King and Martyr, are recorded- but no liturgical forms are given. And fourthly, where no record whatever is made in the register of the business of consecration, as in the famous case of the consecration of St. Catherine Cree. Thus the episcopal registers have yielded but a smaller proportion of the documents which are edited in the following pages, than would have been thought likely beforehand.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
