Each Anglican cathedral in England is an icon of cultural heritage and identity, a key setting for continuing religiosity, and a seat of national spirituality in transition. It is also a regulated sacred space. This book explains and evaluates the regulatory framework applicable to cathedrals and considers how this regulatory framework is perceived and experienced. Using an interdisciplinary and socio-legal approach Norman Doe evaluates of how the regulations and norms governing cathedrals are experienced and whether they fulfil the the needs of cathedral staff and users, as well as suggesting areas in law, theology, and practice which could be reformed. A key theoretical theme is the cathedral as a normative space. How regulation both shapes and is shaped by cathedral architecture is explored through an analysis of the the legal significance of cathedral elements such as the font, pulpit, cathedra, altar, chapter house, and quire. The book thus considers how the direct normative character of the cathedral building itself, with its various segmented and private zones within what is often in practice a public building, how cathedral architecture itself shapes and directs the conduct and identity of its users. The book will prove of use to members of the Church of England, those people with an interest in ecclesiastical law and students and scholars of law and religion.
