1549 · Book of Common Prayer

Age 64

Book of Common Prayer, a product of the English Reformation, was published in 1549 for assistance in the administration of the sacraments and other rites and ceremonies of the church according to the use of the Church of England. The book outlined morning, evening, and communion prayers and orders for baptism and marriage, thus making England a truly Protestant state.
