This collection of essays by leading Anglican and Roman Catholic historians exemplifies the increasing scholarly interchange out of which a more sophisticated interpretation of the history of centuries of separation is developing - an interpretation that can be a unifying rather than a dividing force in future Anglican-Catholic relations.
In helping to create a sense of common ownership of the past, Anglicanism and the Western Christian Tradition also lays the foundations for a way of remembering which holds no barrier to deepening communion in the present.
"In helping to create a sense of common ownership of history, the book gives a strong foundation for future co-operation."
