Abstract

The Anglican Communion is a loose confederation of churches whose historical roots can be traced to the Church of England. The various branches function autonomously; no branch can impose its will on any other. The Archbishop of Canterbury serves a symbolic function as a spiritual leader, but he has no power over the Anglican Communion outside the Church of England.
