Fidei defensor

January 3, 2010

P.D. James’s own historical hero is Thomas Cranmer, author of “our incomparable liturgy.” She is a vice president of the Prayer Book Society and sits on the Church of England’s Liturgical Commission. She recently complained when they wanted to replace Cranmer’s devices and desires with schemes. “They said it’s only because you’ve written a novel called Devices and Desires.”
