The Articles and the Prayer Book

Commenting on the position of the Articles of Religion with regard to the proposed reform of the canon law by Thomas Cranmer and others, Gerald Bray says:

This is a reminder to us of the importance of the articles within the overall settlement; the popular modern view that the essence of Anglicanism is to be found in the prayer book and ordinal, rather than in the articles, cannot be sustained from the evidence. Where the Reformatio is concerned, at least, it was the other way round.
