AEH includes a church review section which focuses on churches in the Anglican tradition. We are interested in the diversity of worship and welcome reviews of historic churches and new ones, neighborhood churches, inner-city ones and rural ones, American churches and churches in other parts of the world, churches with unusual liturgies and churches with typical ones. For details on preparing a review, visit the Church Review page.


Anglican and Episcopal History is interested in reviewing more documentaries and exhibits related to our history. For example, a reviewer is now completing a review of the exhibit on the Tudors at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Suggestions of art and museum exhibits related to Anglican and Episcopal history are welcome. Although AEH has published film reviews previously, we are now more intentionally interested in suggestions for documentaries to review, and reviewers interested in the genre. Suggestions are welcome. Email


Is your institution or organization – parish, diocese, school – engaged in a project designed to investigate history for the benefit of the community? Are you engaged in studying your parish’s complicity with slavery? Are you investigating the residential schools in your diocese? Anglican and Episcopal History  would like to feature some articles on these important historical initiatives. Completed articles will be approximately the length of our current church reviews (5-8 pages). While not expected to be academic articles, submissions should be written for a professional audience and appropriately cited. If you have an interest, email
