Liturgy and Temporality is the 5th installment of the New England Anglican Studies (NEAS) Conference at Harvard Divinity School, sponsored by the HDS Episcopal/Anglican Fellowship. Reborn after a few years hiatus, the conference seeks to expand its scope to engage in ecumenical conversation around matters of theology and liturgy (as the Harvard Liturgy and Theology Conference) that affect Anglicanism as well as a variety of Christian traditions. Anglicanism, by virtue of its tradition as a middle way between Protestantism and Roman Catholicism, provides an expansive basis for breadth of discussion across lines of differences, as well as grounds for commonality between them.
Past conference participants have included scholars at every stage of their careers as well as clergy and other practitioners, from a number of traditions.
