Christianity
and history
The Book of Common Prayer is one of the classics of Christian liturgy originally written by Archbishop Cranmer to provide services in English but subsequently revised. It contains many memorable phrases; e.g. "Dust to Dust, Ashes to Ashes," and has had a profound influence on the development of the English language.
