A Contradiction in Terms? Assessing the Place and Importance of the English Parish Church Cathedrals

Modern Believing (2018), 59, (2), 123–134.

Abstract

Of the 42 cathedrals in the Church of England, nineteen of them are parish church cathedrals, a significant proportion. It is surprising, then, that there does not appear to have been any sustained research or analysis done specifically on parish church cathedrals. Much of the thinking and writing about cathedrals going back to the Heritage and Renewal Report of 19941 only seems to make passing references to parish church cathedrals in the effort to make theological sense of cathedrals and their huge impact on church and society. For many, the title ‘parish church cathedral’ is one that should no longer be used.
