History

A decennial assembly of Bishops in the Worldwide Anglican Communion. Started in 1967 on the suggestion on Bishop John Henry Hopkins of Vermont. Actual impetus due to actions of Canadian privy council regarding Anglican Church during 1865 (because of confederation?) Held at Lambeth Palace in London (Archbishop of Canterbury's London home) until 1968, when size forced them to look elsewhere.
