The Book of Common Prayer: A Guide

The Book of Common Prayer in its “classical” form came into general use in the English church as one component of the so-called “Elizabethan settlement” of religion enacted by Parliament in 1559. Certain alterations of the text, small but important, were made at that time. This chapter is mainly concerned with its use and reception in the century that followed. Among the topics considered are two texts that were very commonly bound with the Prayer Book as quasi-official adjuncts, the “singing Psalms” and “Godly Prayers”; the adaptation and abridgment of the contents for particular uses; and opposition to the Prayer Book on the part of the section of English protestants conventionally known as puritans.

Keywords:   Psalms, Elizabethan settlement, puritans, Ornaments Rubric, Godly Prayers, Sterhnold and Hopkins
