Open a window onto Episcopal history with the works of nineteenth-century priest William Reed Huntington. A leading advocate for liturgical reform and church unity in America, Huntington was a part of 13 General Conventions, a major voice for the revision of the Book of Common Prayer, and the main figure behind the Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral—four statements of Anglican belief aimed at unifying the church, first adopted by the House of Bishops in 1886. This collection gathers a broad swath of Huntington’s work, from the famous The Church Idea, an Essay toward Unity, to books of sermons, to a Short History of the Book of Common Prayer, to Sunday school lessons, to a devotional study of the architecture of the house of God.

William Reed Huntington (1838–1909) was an Episcopal priest. Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, he was educated at Harvard and taught chemistry there from 1859 to 1860. He was ordained in 1862, and served as the parish priest of All Saints Church in Worcester, Massachusetts and then of Grace Church in New York from 1883 to 1909. A major voice for the revision of the Book of Common Prayer and deeply involved in seeking Church unity, Huntington was secretary of the Prayer-Book Revisions Committee and coeditor of the Standard Prayer-Book of 1892. His The Church Idea, an Essay toward Unity formed the basis for the Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral.
