Group Description

This group was established in April 2008 to discuss both academic and practical aspects of the historical Use of Sarum, originally the usage of the Diocese of Salisbury and then the main pre-Reformation rite for Mass, the Office and Sacraments of the whole English Church until 1549.

The moderator of this group is a priest of the Traditional Anglican Communion and chaplain to English expatriates in France. This group is primarily thought out for Anglicans and Roman Catholics, but is also open to Catholics who are not in communion with Rome, Western-Rite Orthodox and other Christians who may be interested in our topic.

The idea of this list is to collaborate in a movement for reviving the Use of Sarum and celebrating it in churches and chapels, over and above difficulties caused by the separation of the Churches to which we belong as priests or laity. The approach is flexible, for example sharing resources, texts, information, and discussing ways for teaching people who know less than we do. The list is not a Church or an ecumenical organisation, but simply a discussion forum.

Since this group’s foundation, we have had little sectarian conflict, given the religious nature of our topic. We do ask members to refrain from writing on topics that would make our discussions deviate from the Sarum liturgy to subjects leading to conflict and offended sensitivities, especially claims for one's particular religious community as the "true church". Troublemakers are liable to be banned after fair warning if their style of conversation is offensive and they refuse to show an open-minded attitude.
