Noted This Week

WHENEVER WE LEARN about a web site that we haven't previously listed, we'll note it here. Sometimes such sites are brand new and sometimes they have been around for a while without our having noticed. We list two (sometimes three) weeks’ worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages. We do not mention on this page remakes of sites that are already in our listings.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site. If you still can't find it, please let us know.

If you would like your website listed at Anglicans Online, please use this form to tell us about it.

Paul shows how faith could turn all our lives around: Geoffrey Rowell writes on the Conversion of St Paul in The Times (London).

Technology: does it dispel the wonder?: Giles Fraser writes in the Church Times (London). 'My own religious faith — and I suspect that of many others, too — has its source in some visceral responses to the world. One might say that it begins with the experience of wonder.'

Worth Noting
Catholic but not Necessarily Roman: Martin Marty writes on Ekklesia.co.uk about church terminology. 'Names are important, as I had to remind a friend who thought discussion of names was insignificant compared to cosmic events like "Iowa" and "New Hampshire." Wars start over pejorative and sometimes even innocently used labels.'

The Church of England's gay crisis makes clear that that liberal Anglicanism is finished, says Theo Hobson in The Guardian. How do you read this article? Its rather opaque position has sparked controversy across the spectrum of opinion in the Communion.

Nights at the Opera: The life of the man who put words to Mozart. An in-depth and fascinating review by Joan Acocella in The New Yorker of the clutch of recent biographies of Mozart's greatest librettist, Lorenzo Da Ponte. Did you know that Da Ponte was the first professor of Italian at Columbia College in New York, then firmly an Episcopal instution? His appointment was furthered by the Reverend Clement Clarke Moore, author of Twas the Night Before Christmas, professor of Hebrew at General Theological Seminary, and son of the second bishop of New York.

Praying for Christian Unity, When Diversity Has Been the Answer: Peter Steinfels writes in the New York Times on the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. 'The battle over whether this or that Christian group’s boundaries are unjustifiably exclusive has not gone away: it is currently being fought around the issue of homosexuality. Yet this battle, too, is being fought within, not between, different Christian churches and denominations, again confirming the priority that identity has taken over unity.'
