The Book of Common Prayer was created out of English Reformation leader Thomas Cranmer's desire for a liturgical text that all of Europe's Protestant, English-speaking churches could agree on. The Book of Common Prayer was first issued in 1549 during the reign of Edward VI and revised through the reign of Mary I, James II, and ending significantly in 1832. The original book, published in 1549 in the reign of Edward VI, was the first prayer book to include the complete forms of service for daily and Sunday worship in English. Its magisterial liturgical language is, "as a source of spiritual inspiration for most Englishmen second only to the Bible" (PMM 75).
