Charles Simeon, the doyen of the evangelical movement in the Hanoverian Church of England, was a passionate advocate of Anglicanisms liturgical heritage. His sermons on The Excellency of the Liturgy, delivered at Cambridge University in 1811, were amongst the most popular he ever preached. This Joint Liturgical Study offers an extended abridgement of The xcellency of the Liturgy, with a historical commentary to set the sermons in their context. It demonstrates both their devotional motivation and their polemical edge, and shows why Simeon rushed the sermons into print in the midst of widespread controversy over evangelical attitudes to the Book of Common Prayer.
