Last week, students of the MA in Liturgy at the College of the Resurrection were treated to a week of teaching on Liturgical Space delivered by Canon Christopher Irvine. Canon Christopher (former principal of the College and former Canon Librarian at Canterbury Cathedral) is the author of several books on art, space and worship including ‘The Cross and Creation in Christian Liturgy and Art’. During the week, the students discussed topics such as baptismal fonts, the art of Ceri Richards and the role of the altar. A recorded lecture by the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Willams and specialist tours of the Upper and Lower Churches at the Community of the Resurrection with Fr George Guiver and of Wakefield Cathedral with Canon Leah Vasey-Saunders (Precentor) were among highlights of the week. This was one of several block teaching weeks covered by the MA in Liturgy with students, lay or ordained, being drawn from across the country.
