The Church of England and Divorce in the Twentieth Century

Full Product Description

Attitudes towards divorce have changed considerably over the past two centuries. As society has moved away from a Biblical definition of marriage as an indissoluble union, to that of an individual and personal relationship, secular laws have evolved as well. Using unpublished sources and previously inaccessible private collections, Holmes explores the significant role the Church of England has played in these changes, as well as the impact this has had on ecclesiastical policies. This timely study will be relevant to ongoing debates about the meaning and nature of marriage, including the theological doctrines and ecclesiastical policies underlying current debates on same-sex marriage.

The Church of England and Divorce in the Twentieth Century by Ann Sumner Holmes was published by Taylor & Francis Ltd in March 2016. The ISBN for The Church of England and Divorce in the Twentieth Century is 9781848936171.
