THE CHURCH

man's task is the infinitely more delicate one of creating an atmosphere which will stifle the impulse, which may lead to crime, before it is born.
The Church of England, ever since the conversion of King Ethelbert of Kent, has been an established part of the system of government. There has been an established church as long as there has been a kingdom of England. Before the separation from Rome, it is true, it owed an external as well as an internal allegiance, but since then the head of the State has been also head of the church. From the beginning the authorities of the church played a part in the government of the State, both legislative and executive, which made their subordination necessary to the royal power. There is not room for two sovereigns in the State. Appreciation of this made the secular rulers increasingly insistent on their participation in ecclesiastical control. If the establishment remained, it stayed largely as an instrument of the lay power. There has never been that revolution in England which elsewhere has expresssed the doctrines of rationalism in the disestablishment of the church and the freeing of religious organisation from worldly privilege and power. Although its importance may have diminished somewhat since the Victorian era, the church still remains an organ both of society and of the State, enjoying place and influence, and emitting a continuous stream of education and propaganda. If this is to-day of less direct political importance, its underlying effects, social and political, cannot be discounted. Nor does the church retain its position because its doctrines are to-day believed to have absolute truth, or because of the universality of its membership.
