Center of Anglican Studies – since 1997, at the service of theology in IEAB.

The Center of Anglican Studies was created in 1997 and, since then, has held an important role in the theological formation and education within the Brazilian Church. The CEA is one of the national institutions maintained by JUNET (National Junta for Theological Education) and its board is made up by members of the JUNET Executive committee (a bishop, a member of clery and a layreader, as well as the Coordinator and the General Secretary of IEAB).

The first coordinator of CEA was Rev. Francisco de Assis. Under the leadership of Rev Francisco de Assis, two publications were created – the series “Reflexôes” and the booklets “Partilha Ministerial”. In 2001, Rev. Carlos Eduardo Calvani took over the coordination. The following year, both series were merged into one, the magazine “Inclusividade”, that is now on its 17th issue. In the same year, the CEA site was launched on the internet and also the program for the distribution of comments on the Anglican lectionary inspired by the late Bishop Takatsu.

In the year of 2005, these comments were published in a series of three books called “Pão da Vida” (Bread of Life)  (Years A, B, and C) as well as the book with the annals of the Anglican Theology Academic Symposium promoted by CEA and held in Londrina, PR.

In 2008, CEA began the publication of books for the education of the lay ministry. The first two to be published were “Nossa Missão” (Our Mission) and “Nossa Fé” (Our Faith).

With views to fulfill its attributions, CEA organizes yearly events in different places in Brazil to gather clergy and lay people who, together, have the opportunity to learn about up to date Anglican Theology, as well as taking part in important moments of ministerial sharing and spiritual experiences. The center has several advisors on hand and, whenever possible, invites foreigners to collaborate with theological formation  in Brazil.
