More About This Title Shaping a Colonial Church


Ten historians tell the story of the setting up of a branch of the Church of England in a new colony. They highlight the people – bishop, clergy, lay people, including Maori – who shaped this story. The story is set in a wider context of the evolution of provincial and colonial society and the development of the Anglican church, both in New Zealand and worldwide.


The editors are both retired lecturers at the University of Canterbury – Colin Brown in Religious Studies and Marie Peters in history.
