The March 2024 issue of Anglican and Episcopal History is now available. In addition to 6 peer-reviewed essays, readers enjoy a variety of church reviews, exhibit reviews, and 24 book reviews.

Church Reviews:

Three church reviews provide a glimpse of Holy Week Triduum customs in the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago. These include Maundy Thursday at the Church of the Ascension in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood, Good Friday at Church of the Atonement in Chicago’s Edgewater neighborhood, and the Great Vigil of Easter at the diocesan cathedral of St. James.

Engaged History:

Engaged history features collaborative projects undertaken by Anglican and Episcopal institutions that confront buried historical narratives.

This issue features efforts in the Episcopal Diocese of West Missouri to address the painful legacy of White supremacy in a state where 60 people were lynched between 1877 and 1950. Readers learn about the horrific Easter 1906 lynching of Fred Coker, Horace Duncan, and Will Allen in the presence of 3,000 people in Springfield, Missouri.

The article is written by John Spicer of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Kansas City, Missouri.
