Overview

Anglicanism came to Australia with the First Fleet in 1788 and the subsequent creation of the Diocese of Australia. The Anglican Church has played an important role in the development of Australian society, through both its institutions and its social exemplification in a community of people. This book traces the history and significance of Anglicanism in its Australian context, through both chronological narrative and an exploration of the relationship between Anglicanism and other themes in Australia�s history, such as gender, indigenous Australians, theology, and the arts.

Bruce Kaye is currently general secretary of the Anglican Church of Australia General Synod. He is a graduate of the universities of Sydney, London, and Basel in Switzerland and has taught at the University of Durham in England and the University of New South Wales, where he was also the master of New College. He lives in Sydney, Australia.
