New Paths

  • G. J. Cuming


After the débâcle of 1928, interest in revision naturally slackened, at any rate in England. In 1936 Convocation approved a form of Administration of Unction and the Laying-on of Hands, which brought English provision for the sick into line with other recently revised books.1 Two years later the archbishop of Canterbury (C. G. Lang) said in Convocation that he was not ‘prepared at present to introduce a new Prayer Book Measure into Parliament’.2 In spite of this declaration, a ‘Round Table Conference’ was called in 1938 to prepare a workable liturgy, but it did not survive the outbreak of war.3
