The Baptismal Ecclesiology of Holy Women, Holy Men: Developments in the Theology of Sainthood in the Episcopal Church

Daniel E. Joslyn-Siemiatkoski and Ruth A. Meyers

In 2009, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church approved a new liturgical resource, Holy Women, Holy Men, adding over one hundred commemorations to the calendar. A list of criteria approved in 2006 guided the work of the committee that produced this resource. The baptismal theology of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer informs these criteria and the range of figures added to the calendar in 2009. In turn, this leads to a qualitatively different view of holiness than that represented in the calendars of other churches, including the Roman Catholic Church and the Church of England.
