THE SOCIAL EDGE INTERVIEW: ARCHBISHOP ROWAN WILLIAMS
by Gerry McCarthy
Rowan Williams was elected Anglican Archbishop of Wales in December 1999. A distinguished theologian, he was Professor of Theology at Oxford from 1986 to 1992. His many books include Teresa of Avila, Open to Judgment, Sergii Bulgakov, Lost Icons: Reflections on Cultural Bereavement, and On Christian Theology. His forthcoming book Ponder These Things: Praying with Icons of the Virgin (Sheed & Ward) will be published this June. Married with two children, William’s wife, Jane Paul, teaches at Trinity College, Bristol.
I reached Archbishop Williams by telephone in Stow Hill, Newport, South Wales. We spoke about his books Lost Icons and On Christian Theology.
