Who speaks for the church? Anglican voices and Australian public life

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The natively public vocation of Anglicanism is set out and the non-established nature of Australian Anglicanism clarified. A quasi-establishment voice has been the Australian version of Anglican public witness, and this various forms of this--episcopal, clerical, instititutional, ecclesial party and lay--are set out, against particular features of Australian history (such as the exclusion of theology from the Universities). The challenges to that voice being heard are then enumerated, with examples ranging from the Hollingworth controversy to the post-mosern critique of text-based Anglican formularies.
