Prayer-Book

Since the article on this subject was written (vol. 2) the Church of England has considered the propriety of purging the Book of Common Prayer of the Athanasian Creed, which the American Church rejected. In the Irish Church (Protestant Episcopal), recently disestablished the Athanasian Creed is purged of the damnatory clauses, and retained in that modified form. Since the organization of the Reformed Protestant Episcopal Church, the Prayer-book originally framed for the (American) Protestant Episcopal Church was made the basis of another Book of Common Prayer, from which all language that seems to justify the ritualism of the High-Church party has been carefully expunged. Recent literature on this subject may be found in the Edinb. Rev. Oct. 1874, art. 6; Brit. Quar. Jan. 1875, p. 144; Church Journal (N. Y.), June 17, 1875; Blunt, Key to the Knowledge and Use of the Book of Common Prayer (Lond. 1869); Contemporary Rev. Dec. 1872, art. 7. (See COMMON PRAYER).
