His Holiness visits Most Rev. Dr. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury at Lambeth Palace
LONDON: His Holiness Patriarch Ignatius Zakka-I Iwas visited Most Reverend Dr. Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Supreme head of the Anglican Church of England at Lambeth Palace, the official residence of the Archbishop on July 08, Thursday. His Holiness was welcomed at the palace by the Archbishop. His Holiness was accompanied by His Eminence Mor Athanasius Touma Dokkoma, the Patriarchal Vicar for Great Britain. His Holiness thanked Archbishop for his historical visit to the Patriarchate a few years ago. His Holiness presented the Archbishop a Holy bible in Syriac.

The Archbishop of Canterbury is the chief bishop and principal leader of the Church of England, the symbolic head of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and the diocesan bishop of the Diocese of Canterbury. In his role as head of the Anglican Communion, the archbishop leads the third largest group of Christians in the world.

The current archbishop is the Most Reverend Dr. Rowan Williams. He is the 104th, in a line that goes back more than 1400 years to St. Augustine of Canterbury, the "Apostle to the English", who founded the Church in England in the year 597. From the time of St Augustine until the 16th century, the Archbishops of Canterbury were in full communion with the See of Rome and thus received the pallium. During the English Reformation the Church of England broke away from the authority of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church, at first temporarily under Henry VIII and Edward VI and later permanently during the reign of Elizabeth I.
