Rowan Williams on his forthcoming visit with the Pope

In this Church Times interview the Archbishop explains why he is an Anglican and not a Roman Catholic. And in defending the Anglican model of church he uses refers to Vincent Donovan’s Christianity Rediscovered – the account now at least 30 years old – of the way Christianity was introduced to a Maasai community East Africa in a way which was expressed in terms of their own culture. This he contrasts with the tendency of the Roman Catholic Church to impose things from the centre.
