Roundup: Archbishop of Canterbury
Congratulatory letter from WCC General Secretary.
The Queen has approved the nomination of the Right Reverend Justin Welby for election as the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury.
Archbishop Welby is an evangelical — a Bible Anglican — which would suggest he is more in the theological mould of former archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, than Rowan Williams, whom Welby replaces.
Archbishop amid fallen idols.
For the first time in history, the announcement of who would succeed to the See of Canterbury was seen first on twitter (via the @Number10press office), before the formal Downing Street and Lambeth announcements of the archbishop elect.
