'Are there nuns and monks in the Anglican Church?' is a question still asked 160 years after the first Anglican religious since Reformation times made a profession of vows. But ever since the 1840's, religious men and women have made a rich and prayerful contribution to the Anglican tradition in pastoral work, teaching, nursing and reaching out to those whom society overlooks.
These essays portray the recovery of religious life within the Anglican tradition as a gift from God and also recognise that religious communities have entered a time of searching and revision.
