Charles Simeon (1759-1836) of Cambridge, the doyen of the evangelical movement, has often been portrayed as an ardent upholder of Anglican church order. His abhorrence of ecclesiastical irregularities is legendary. For two centuries Simeon’s defence of canon law and submission to episcopal authority has been presented as the standard of loyal Anglican churchmanship, a model for other evangelicals in the Church of England to follow.
This St Antholin’s Lecture for 2009 marks the 250th anniversary of Simeon’s birth.
Andrew Atherstone is tutor in history and doctrine, and Latimer research fellow, at Wycliffe Hall, Oxford.

His major research interest is the history of evangelicalism in the Church of England, and he is preparing a critical edition of the complete correspondence of Charles Simeon for the Church of England Record Society.
