Mirfield Liturgical Institute
College of the Resurrection
West Yorkshire, UK

Keynote Address:
Professor Bryan Spinks

Selective liturgical anamnesis : Authenticating the present with an imagined past

Professor Spinks writes: that he would hope this includes  “… a discussion on historical method and memory, and how the brain remembers, selecting things to either affirm or question the present. I then propose two case studies of Conrad Noel using the ‘English use’ at Thaxted and how he linked this to Socialism; and Divine Worship: The Missal of the ordinariate and Anglican identity”
