Recently Awarded Degrees

 

One of the powers which the Archbishop has by virtue of the Ecclesiastical Licences Act 1533 is the power to award degrees. Although these are commonly termed “Lambeth Degrees”, the Archbishop is not a university and the degrees he awards are full degrees of the Realm.

The degrees are normally awarded to those who have distinguished themselves in the service of the Christian Church, but a number of Master of Arts degrees and Doctorates are awarded after examination. Some of the degrees awarded in recent years are shown below.
