An exhibition celebrating the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer will be launched on Thursday October 4 in Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin.
Entitled ‘The Word that spake it’, the exhibition will be launched in the context of Evensong in the cathedral starting at 6.00 pm. The preacher will be the Revd Canon Dr William Marshall. ‘This exhibition celebrates the great heritage of liturgical reform and development and draws together a wide variety of editions of the Book of Common Prayer to tell something of its 350th anniversary journey,’ the introduction to the exhibition catalogue states.
The exhibition, compiled by the Revd Canon Roy Byrne, will be on display in the cathedral’s Treasury throughout from autumn and spring 2013.
