What's New on this website

The Book of Common Prayer is one of the major works of English literature. Since its introduction in the mid-1500's it has exerted enormous influence on the religious and literary lives of all who speak the English language. The Book of Common Prayer has gone through a number of editions, not only in England where it originated, but in all the places where the various Churches of the Anglican Communion are now active.

We present here several dozen Books of Common Prayer, and related works, from all over the Anglican Communion. Click on one of the links at left and start exploring.

A note about copyrights: I often receive email asking if such-and-such a Prayer Book is online. Usually the reason it is not is because it is under copyright and so may not be placed online without the copyright holder's permission. I do not have any such texts here, nor will I knowingly link to any such text placed online. Some of the texts which you may like to see here, but which aren't here because of copyright reasons include:
