This post touches on the issue of common prayer and liturgical revision in the Episcopal Church. The latter would ultimately triumph with the adoption of the Book of Common Prayer.
From elsewhere[ edit ] This is largely a consolidation of the Anglican sections at Real Presence and Eucharistic theologies contrasted. Please add to it. In fact, the article attempts I hope to convey the view that there is a vast middle ground of consensus encompassing the views of consubstantiation and sacramental union.
The transubstantiationist and exclusively memorialist perspectives are decidedly minority ones.
First, no disrespect to you as a priest in the Anglican Church of Canada, but the Anglican Communion is a very large worldwide body without a magisterium to give official statements of Anglican theology and I find it very unlikely that any one contributor to Wikipedia would have experience of Anglicanism in all its guises across the world to speak with any authority in this regard.
A Canadian Anglican is unlikely to know what Anglicans in Nigeria, Brazil, the Congo, the West Indies etc etc etc actually think about the presence of the Lord in the Eucharist or vestments or whether it's properly called an 'altar' or 'the Lord's Table'.
Your consensus may in fact only be one of White Anglophone Anglicans. Secondly, I would even doubt a consensus of white Anglophone Anglicans. Taking my native Australia as an example, the article as does Wikipedia in general tends to dismiss the views of Sydney Anglicans and implicitly of like-minded evangelical Anglicans elsewhere as aberrant and peripheral.
Yet Sydney Diocese is numerically the largest diocese in Australia. On any given Sunday there are more Anglicans in church in Sydney than the rest of Australia combined.
What does that do to your so-called consensus? And the situation is not too dissimiliar in other parts of the Anglican world such as the Church of England. Although Liberals and Anglo-Catholics may dominate Synod and Diocesan appointments, as far as 'bums on seats' in church go, Low Church Evangelicals who in all likelihood -- I haven't bothered to take a survey!
Moreover, I sympathise with the comment above about the article coming down to there being no Anglican Eucharistic theology. That is not to say that there isn't an Anglican Eucharistic theology, but merely that the Article doesn't present it.
Any treatment of "Anglican Eucharistic Theology" necessarily has to expound official Anglican sources such as the 39 Articles and the BCP in light of historical controversy eg the Reformation, Puritanism, Rationalism, the Oxford Movement etc and how differnt parties within Anglicanism view these sources differently.
This Article describes a range of eucharistic theologies and practices found within Anglicanism but doesn't adequately expound upon official Anglican sources. Low Church Anglicans well at least those of a conservative Evangelical bent would say that the 39 Articles and the BCP were clear and binding and forbid many Anglo-Catholic eucharistic practices such as reservation, adoration, vestments, belief in the corporal presence etcdenouncing them as idolatry even.
Most Anglo-Catholics on the other hand would suggest that the 39 Articles and the BCP are not so clear in their denunciation of these practices or say that these documents stem from the time of the Reformation and the Church has moved on from then.
This sounds a lot like "Whatever some Anglicans believe about the Eucharist is flatly denied by other Anglicans" to me. Our goal is to improve and expand Anglican-reltaed articles.
If anyone Anglican or non-Anglican is interested, read over the project page and consider signing up. A cursory glance at the eBook from New Zealand which was removed as adspam suggests to me that it may in fact be a useful companion to the Eucharistic liturgy. I'd like to nominate it as a Good articlebut first it needs inline citations of sources.
Granted, this subject is notoriously difficult to write upon briefly without expressing bias, but a number of points need to be made here: The statement that "Anglicans and Roman Catholics declared" substantial agreement is at best vague and at worst highly tendentious.
To the unknowing reader this would suggest that the Anglican Communion and the Church of Rome reached agreement when nothing could be further from the truth. By its very nature ARCIC is inhabited by Anglo-Catholics sympathetic to reunion with Rome and anything it says has to be read in light of this and understood to represent Anglo-Catholicic views rather than broadly Anglican views.
This section lumps together Zwinglian and Calvinistic views of the Lord's Supper. These theologies are actually very different and it is not correct to describe a Calvinistic theology of the Lord's Supper as 'memorialist'.
In fact elsewhere in the introduction the article attempts to do this by stating that most Low Church Anglicans believe in the Real Presence but that it is not carnal, which would tend to include Calvinists.
Also, the discussion of rejection of reservation and adoration of the sacrament under this head is somewhat puzzling an instance of High Church bias?
In other words, while memorialists and Calvinists! As presently written the article suggests that objection to reservation and adoration is merely a memorialist quibble, when in fact official Anglican sources are directly on point although no doubt controversial in their application given the diversity of views in practice!
Consubstantiation or Sacramental Union. From my comments above, I would doubt that there is such a 'consensus' position within Anglicanism.
Secondly, a clear majority preference for a particular theology or practice is not entirely relevant. In other words the majority of Anglicans believing A does not make A authentic Anglican theology.Introduction In this essay, I am going to explain one definition of theology together with a definition from a few great theologians.

S. Haley. Theologians from the Anglican tradition can help both the debate in Roman Catholic moral theology and the ecumenical impasse.
The article examines the contributions of Richard Hooker, Jeremy Taylor, and Kenneth Kirk from –, in the area of fundamental moral theology. I suppose they can't go so far as to publish some of the Catholic theologians who have a different take on the subject of gay civil marriage than the bishops, but perhaps America's staff still.
