Overview

Cosmo Lang was Archbishop of Canterbury for 15 years (1928–1942), holding the office longer than any other twentieth-century Archbishop. His legacy is somewhat scattered, lacking a cohesive direction. He was a talented orator and administrator, who ably handled problems, but his solutions lacked a unified vision. In his early career he was heavily involved with helping the poor, supporting the controversial liberal 1909 “people’s budget,” but upon his elevation to Archbishop of Canterbury he detached himself from lower society and everyday life. The Select Works of Cosmo Lang collects many of his early writings and sermons, including The Miracles of Jesus and The Parables of Jesus—Lang’s own exegesis and application of the Gospel texts, his lectures on The Opportunity of the Church of England and The Unity of the Church of England, and The Principles of Religious Education. This collection provides an excellent overview of the perspective and politics of the early twentieth-century Anglican Church.

About Cosmo Lang

Cosmo Lang (1864–1945) was a Scottish Anglican prelate, serving as Archbishop of York from 1908 to 1928 and Archbishop of Canterbury from 1928 to 1942. He was elevated to Archbishop of York just 18 years after his ordination, a relative youth. During his early ministry he served in the slum parishes of Leeds and Portsmouth. Early on in his tenure as Archbishop of York he was considered somewhat of a radical, supporting the 1909 “people’s budget,” but in later years he distanced himself from such causes. He became close with the royal family and was created a Knight Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order by George VI. He retired in 1942, after serving for 15 years as head of the Church.
