The Vision Glorious

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the historic concern of missionary bishops with Anglican identity, with the apostolic character of the Church, and with the succession of the bishopric episcopate. The questions of identity and continuity started to emerge as British influences spread overseas and churchmen became increasingly conscious of the need to provide spirituality for colonists from England. To address these issues, an Act of Parliament was passed in 1786 to empower archbishops to consecrate bishops for territories outside British jurisdiction and the Colonial Bishoprics Fund was established in 1841.
