The Anglican Exemplary Tradition

Timothy F. Sedgwick

DOWNLOAD COMPLETE ARTICLE PDF

A distinctive strand of Anglican thought addressing Christian faith and Christian life may be described as the exemplary tradition, represented by Jeremy Taylor, Thomas Traherne, Joseph Butler, F. D. Maurice, and Kenneth Kirk. This virtue tradition within Anglicanism seeks to bring persons more fully into relationship with God as a matter of practices that shape fundamental intentions. This strand is informed by contemporary ethical theory while offering claims and raising questions beyond what theory provides in order to form a unified account of the Christian moral life. This constructive archeology of tradition is what is needed in order to insure theory and the lived traditions of Christian faith inform one another.
