Mitre and the Crown
From St Augustine in the sixth century to Rowan Williams in the twenty-first, the archbishops of Canterbury have provided leadership for the English Church. More than a hundred archbishops have offered spiritual leadership and political influence, whether in co-operation with the secular power or as its critics.
