“As with the Psalter, scripture was read by the monks continuously or ‘in course’, a practice known as lectio continua.” (Page 452)

“The term ‘office’ derives from the Latin term meaning ‘duty’ or ‘obligation” (Page 64)

“Purgatory and the abuses connected with it were to be rooted out” (Page 29)

“Cranmer adopted the view of fellow reformers, such as Bucer and Calvin, that in the early church confirmation provided an opportunity for the baptized to profess their own faith. Historically this was wrong, but pastorally it was appropriate in an age now sensitive to the issue of a personal affirmation of faith. It was on this point, for example, that the Anabaptists had criticized the baptism of infants.” (Pages 35–36)

“Theological aspects of this unity include the notions of consecration, sacrifice, presence, offering, memorial (anamnesis), and the role of the Spirit (epiclesis)—ironically often the source of disunity.” (Page 467)
