Fr. Williams Taylor’s Book Launch, Lambeth Palace

Fr. William Taylor, an Anglican Priest in Notting Hill and Chairman of the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association. Fr. William launched his new book Narratives of Identity – The Syrian Orthodox Church and the Church of England 1895-1914, Published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing, under the auspices of the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association.

Present were members of the Association, friends and colleagues. Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain, the Rt Revd Dr Vahan Havhanessian – Primate of the Armenian Church in the U.K. and the Turkish Ambassador were among the distinguished guests. Fr. William introduced the book, explaining its relevance to the current epoch, since the Middle East is again undergoing political and territorial changes. Both Archbishops then greeted everyone, giving their own accounts on the importance of this book and the significant role Fr. William plays in regards to Ecumenical Relations between East and West. The night concluded with a beautiful song, using the original Aramaic text, used for the completion of this book.  

This book contributes greatly to the further understanding of the relations between Eastern and Western Christianity, showing the relevance of the relations and dialogues which have taken place for more than a century. For more information on the book, please look here
